UCTV Prime: The Skinny on Obesity
Maybe you saw him last night on “60 Minutes.” Or perhaps you’re one of the millions who’s watched his UCTV YouTube video “Sugar: The Bitter Truth.” UCSF’s Dr. Robert Lustig has made some serious waves with his research that points to sugar as a toxin that’s fueling the global obesity epidemic, and soon he’ll be coming to UCTV Prime.
Premiering April 13, “The Skinny on Obesity” is a seven-part series examining the startling rise in obesity rates and how UC San Francisco researchers like Dr. Lustig are working to combat it. Don’t miss this essential series, exclusive to UCTV Prime, a YouTube original channel. New episodes every Friday. Watch a trailer at the series page.
Emotions, Thoughts & Health: What All Aging Bodies Should Know
Our brains change as we age, and how we think and feel changes too. Could it be that paying attention to our daily lives and our aging brains might slow our cellular aging? Or that certain emotional interactions can predict relationship happiness decades later?
In these new programs from UCSF’s Osher Mini Medical School, researchers and experts share the latest science on the intersection between cognition, emotion, health and aging. It’s an exciting new frontier and you — and your brain — won’t want to miss it!
