PA Childhood Obesity Study Released

HARRISBURG – York County Rep. Seth Grove and the Joint State Government Commission unveiled the findings from a study of childhood obesity across Pennsylvania. The report followed a yearlong investigation, which included hearings on the issue and insight from public and private obesity experts and groups such as the YMCA. The report recommended that a statewide childhood obesity prevention advisory board be established as a collaborative partnership between public and private childhood obesity experts. Unlike previous advisory boards, that where placed under control of one government agency, the childhood obesity prevention advisory board should be organized as an independent commission where not-for-profit, academic, and community-based representatives work in partnership with government agencies.You can read the report by CLICKING HERE.
