OP-ED: "Good Policies Can Change the Curve of Child Obesity"

Connecticut Rep. Kim Fawcett stands up for the benefits of exercise in an op-ed for a local news source, The Minute Man News Center.

Fawcett writes: "As the Vice Chair of the legislatures Children's Committee I have had the unique opportunity to intensely follow public policy conversations and changes that are impacting our kids. In a response to the growing epidemic of childhood obesity we passed legislation last year that created the Child Obesity Task Force. The task force brings together lawmakers with child, health and nutrition advocates from across the state. Our charge: to develop policy initiatives that get at the root of child obesity and begin to change the curve."
