THERE IS A HEALTH CRISIS

Obesity is an epidemic and a root cause for other chronic diseases such as diabetes, cancer, and dementia.

For the first time in our history, children in the U.S. may have shorter lifespan than their parents due to the health effects of obesity.

 

THE SOLUTION BEGINS WITH RESEARCH

With your help, and the innovative work of Pennington Biomedical scientists, the future could look very different. It can be here sooner than you think – for you, your children, and your grandchildren.

We must act now.

“We are so impressed with the amazing work Pennington Biomedical is doing. We know that the rates of obesity and the incidents of Type 2 diabetes are exploding not only in Louisiana but around the world.

To be part of supporting the scientists who can help find solutions to these monumental challenges—well, that is nothing short of incredible.”
