Weight of the state


I had the opportunity to go to a few sessions at yesterday's Weight of the State conference. A sobering affair on many levels. The basic take away as you might imagine is "heavy", pun intended. The overall obesity rate in the Commonwealth is on the rise and particularly troublesome among our youth. Some studies suggest that they are the first generation in a long time whose life expectancy will be shorter than their parents'.

For some of the conference presentations, you can visit the website at Weight of the State.
