Obesity increases the risk of a number of health conditions including hypertension, adverse lipid concentrations, and type-2 diabetes. Annual medical expenditures attributable to obesity have doubled in less than a decade, and may be as high as $147 billion per year according to RTI International.

This poster will help to identify the root causes of the obesity and how to reduce that weight and insurance costs among the student community. This paper will help to bridge the gap among US department of health, insurance and education system at least by 5% in a year and 25% in next 5 years with respect to costs and awareness. Like a "safe driver" in auto-insurance industry, health insurance industry has to recognize and be ready to provide rewards to the "healthy driver" by reducing the health insurance costs
