        The Secret Life of Scientists & Engineers | James Levine

        Meet obesity researcher James Levine in this video profile from NOVA’s “The Secret Life of Scientists & Engineers.” James’s personal struggle with obesity and his aversion to fitness gyms led him to create the treadmill desk. His invention not only helped him lose weight but also inspired this former "coach potato" to live life to its fullest vitality. He now oversees an obesity research laboratory that works with corporations to help their employees move more while at work, reduce health risks, and become more productive individuals. This resource is part of the NOVA: Secret Life of Scientists & Engineers Collection.
