Obama Administration says Obesity Remains Priority

In an interview last week with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (scroll to the 3rdarticle), Assistant Secretary of Health Howard Koh indicated that obesity prevention would remain an important priority during the president’s second term.

Referring to obesity as one of “the most challenging public health issues of our time,” Assistant Secretary Koh pointed to a number of areas where the Administration would remain active on this issue over the next four years, including an upcoming review of the federal government’s physical activity guidelines later this year, as well as an expansion of the Let’s Move! campaign.
