The CDC, along with HBO, The Institutes of Medicine and several private partners created a series of documentaries, called Weight of the Nation which aired last week, but you can still watch them all online.
We wrote a feature about our own Matt Gainey- who made tremendous strides to change his health. Matt is just one of many success stories in Arizona. We’ve created a website that collects stories like Matt’s as well as success stories from communities across the state. Let us know what you’ve done to make a difference in your community – together we can put the brakes on the growth of obesity and work for people to have health at every size. You can watch the documentary online for free here: http://theweightofthenation.hbo.com/. The full report and supporting materials, including recommendations on promoting physical activity and supporting healthy eating and healthy weights, are available online.
