Nearly two-thirds of Ohio adults are overweight or obese, making Ohio the fifth heaviest state in the nation.
Obesity is more than a weight problem – it’s a community health issue that leads to preventable illness such as diabetes and heart disease. It also contributes to skyrocketing health care costs. We’ll talk about what communities can do to help people live healthier lives.
