The screening event offers an in-depth look at obesity followed by a lively discussion about how we can work to reduce obesity rates on our campus and in our community. With 68 percent of U.S. adults and 31.7 percent of the nation’s children and adolescents (age 2-19) overweight or obese, there is no better time than now to start taking steps to reverse these trends and help improve the quality of life for everyone on our campus and in our community.
This will be an excellent opportunity for you to join our efforts to combat obesity and work toward improving the health and nutrition of our community. You will have the chance to listen to an expert panel of WKU personnel about how our university is addressing this health issue, learn more about maintaining a healthy lifestyle for you and your loved ones, and contribute to recommendations on how local businesses and other organizations can improve our community to empower individuals and families to make healthier choices.
