Roundtable on Added Sugar Consumption

The Center has the capacity to organize and host local, state and national expert roundtables on chronic disease subjects. 

Most recently, the Center hosted The Kaiser Permanente/American Heart Association Expert Roundtable on Added/Free Sugar Consumption. The meeting assembled 33 leading experts, academics and advocates from across the country and internationally to discuss strategies to cut excess sugar consumption. 
Specifically, researchers and experts from the Harvard School of Public Health, Dannon, Partnership for a Healthier America, multiple University of California campuses, Duke University School of Public Policy, ChangeLab Solutions and others discussed topics ranging from menu labeling and federal nutritional standards to the most vulnerable communities who are "extreme consumers" of sugar.
The UCLA Center for Health Policy Research organized the roundtable. Kaiser Permanente and the American Heart Association were co-sponsors of the event.
