Dr. Janet Collins is the director of the Centers for Disease Control’s Division of Nutrition, Physical Activity and Obesity. "When we look at the data, what is inspiring the health care costs, there's no question that obesity is a dire issue," she said at Washington Post Live's 2013 Childhood Obesity Summit. Collins highlights success across the country, in schools as well as in breast-feeding pushes and more playable and walkable infrastructure.
