Rep. Kind Recognizes National Obesity Care Week

November 1, 2017
Press Release

National Obesity Care Week is recognized during the first week of November when individuals and organizations from across the country raise awareness about the serious chronic disease of obesity. Below is U.S. Rep. Ron Kind’s statement on National Obesity Care Week:

“This week reminds us that there is still work to be done to make the healthy choice the easy choice for families. Easier access to the tools and education to prevent and treat obesity; affordable, nutritious food to promote a balanced diet; and an increased emphasis on physical activity to maintain our overall health are critical to our quality of life and the economic success of our country. I urge my fellow Members to join me in recognizing obesity as a serious, chronic disease and work towards improving access to evidence-based tools for chronic weight management.”
