American Heart Association says Elected Officials must ‘rise to the challenge’ to see declines in Obesity

 

Comments from Nancy Brown, American Heart Association CEO, on the State of Obesity report released by the Trust for America’s Health and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation

American Heart AssociationDallas, TX – This year’s State of Obesity report from Trust for America’s Health and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation is the latest evidence that adult obesity rates in the U.S. have steadied in recent years. After decades of sharp increases, this counts as a significant achievement.

But with rates still far too high among both adults and kids, particularly among low-income and minority communities, leaders at all levels of government – local, state, and federal – must take action and build on this progress.
