Anti-Obesity Program

Chania Mayor Emmanouil Skoulakis (pictured on the left) is a physician who formerly served as Greece's deputy minister of health. The financial crisis has made it harder for the national government to implement its anti-obesity program.

Jon Miller of Homelands Productions traveled to the Greek island of Crete to find out why its obesity rate has increased over the years. He took these photos along the way.
