Eliminating Sugary Drinks in a Large Health System: Leveraging Data for Systems Change

Wednesday, August 26, 2020 - 12:00 p.m. 

Webinar Registration

A growing movement of hospitals and health systems in the U.S. have stopped selling sugary drinks or reduced their availability in favor of healthier alternatives. Healthier food and beverage environments in hospitals align with their health-focused mission, can have a measurable impact on employee health, and spur action among other employers and organizations.

Join the Public Health Law Center and American Cancer Society in learning from the University of California, San Francisco, which ended the sale of sugary drinks in all campus sites and medical facilities in 2015. The presenters will discuss the development and implementation of the UCSF Healthy Beverage Initiative, how they evaluated the impact of the policy on employee health, and how they are leveraging their experience to catalyze broader change.

This webinar is the second in a four-part series on creating healthier food and beverage environments in hospitals and healthcare settings.

Presenters:
Laura A. Schmidt, Ph.D, M.S.W., M.P.H., Professor, School of Medicine, University of California, San Francisco
Elissa Epel, Ph.D, Professor, School of Medicine, University of California, San Francisco

Moderator:
Craig Moscetti, M.P.H., Policy Analyst, Public Health Law Center
