Anemia in Infants & Children
More than 3.5 million children under the age of five die each year in developing countries due to maternal and child malnutrition. That’s why Lucy Liu is teaming up with the Heinz Micronutrient Campaign to combat one of the most widespread global health threats to infants and children…iron deficiency anemia, often considered a “hidden hunger.” Since 2001, nearly 5 million children in 15 developing countries have received life-changing vitamin and mineral powders through the campaign. Lucy joins Melanie Cole M.S. to discuss this campaign and how the public can get involved and make a difference in the lives of children.
You know her as the kick-butt star of movies like “Charlie’s Angels”, “Kill Bill” and the soon-to-be-released “Kung Fu Panda 2”. But actress Lucy Liu proves her heart is in the right place, taking on a “hidden hunger” and helping malnourished children worldwide get healthy. Following her Broadway debut last year in the Tony Award-winning play “God of Carnage,” Lucy is returning to the big screen. First up, Lucy will be reprising her role as Viper in “Kung Fu Panda 2,” out today. Look out for her latest film project, “The Man with the Iron Fists,” co-starring Russell Crowe, slated for release in 2012. While best known for “Charlie’s Angels” and “Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle”, Lucy’s other film credits include “Kill Bill: Volume 1”, “Lucky Number Slevin”, and “Chicago”. Liu's television work includes her Emmy and SAG Award-nominated work on "Ally McBeal," as well as "Cashmere Mafia" and "Dirty Sexy Money."
