Vital Strategies invites you to our next Vital Talks event: Vital Talks – How Mexico Stood Up to Big Soda and What Latin America Is Doing in the Fight Against Obesity.

Alejandro Calvillo Unna, founder and director of Mexico’s El Poder del Consumidor, EPC (The Power of the Consumer) will discuss how Mexico, where more than 70% of the population is overweight or obese, defied the powerful beverage industry and succeeded in passing a soda tax that has successfully reduced consumption. The event will be moderated by Paula Johns, co-founder and director of ACT Health Promotion, Brazil, and a leading public health activist. Brazil is also deeply engaged in efforts to promote healthier food and to reduce obesity.

The event will take place on Thursday, July 11, 2019, 8:30 a.m. – 9:45 a.m. at Vital Strategies’ headquarters, 100 Broadway in New York City, 4thFloor.

A light breakfast will be served.
