Tonight HBO premiers the continuation of Weight of the Nation, a documentary about obesity in the United States.  The film is based on the IOM report Accelerating Progress in Obesity Prevention: Solving the Weight of the Nation, which is available for free at the National Academies Press website, and was produced in association with the Centers for Disease Control and National Institute of Health.  The Weight of the Nation documentary is part of a nation-wide public health campaign, which also includes an accompanying book by the same title, 13 short videos, and a community-based outreach program.
