Guiding Light Star Highlights Dangers of Obesity

Caitlin Van Zandt who, like her character Ashlee on Guiding Light, recently underwent Lap-Band surgery, a less invasive weight-loss method than gastric bypass surgery.

Van Zandt spoke in front of the Capitol building in Washington, D.C., during the "Walk From Obesity" on Tuesday, June 17. The Walk on the Capitol was a history-making awareness event geared to help bring national attention to the obesity epidemic and the need for expanded efforts in prevention and treatment.
