All women are invited to attend Savvy Women Exchanging Relevant Views to hear Dr. David Scott Weigle discuss humanity’s struggle with obesity at SWERV’s meeting next week.

Weigle, a professor emeritus in the department of medicine at the University of Washington, will give the talk, “Human Obesity: How Did We Get This Way, and What Can We Do About It?”

Throughout his career, Weigle has sought a deeper understanding of this worldwide “epidemic.” He’ll discuss the biological system that regulates the amount of fat stored in the body, factors that can reset the system, the health consequences of obesity and approaches to reducing one’s body mass.

SWERV meets from 10:30 a.m. to noon Tuesday, April 9 at Filipino American Hall, 7566 High School Road.
