Keynote Speaker in Health and Wellness
Stella Metsovas Live Speaking Clips
Almost half of American’s will be obese by 2030.
The health hazards associated with obesity-related conditions include diabetes and heart disease–two of the leading causes of death in the United States (1). According to Harvard School of Public Health, treating obesity and the onset of conditions caused by obesity will cost billions of dollars per year, with an estimate of 190 billion dollars annually (2). Inevitably, this will impact all areas of work production.
One widely-quoted estimate from Finkelstein and colleagues, based on data from the U.S. Medical Expenditure Panel Survey (MEPS), found that obesity was responsible for about 6 percent of medical costs in 1998, or about $42 billion (in 2008 dollars). (7) By 2006, obesity was responsible for closer to 10 percent of medical costs—nearly $86 billion a year. Spending on obesity-related conditions accounted for an estimated 8.5 percent of Medicare spending, 11.8 percent of Medicaid spending, and 12.9 percent of private-payer spending.
