Lecture 19 - The Law and Opportunities to Improve Nutrition and Health (Guest Lecture by Stephen Teret)

This video was recorded at YALE PSYC 123 The Psychology, Biology and Politics of Food with Professor Kelly D. Brownell. Professor Stephen Teret discusses how public health strategies and policies can address obesity-related issues. Specifically, he explains how gun violence prevention and motor vehicle related injury prevention can inform multi-level interventions for childhood obesity. In addition, Professor Teret also draws from his own experiences in public health and litigation, and offers advice on what to consider when selecting policies to protect the well-being of populations.
