Obesity in the US

Adult Obesity in the United States is not a new issue. The stats that are out there are scary. "Wide sections of the Southeast, Appalachia, and some tribal lands in the West and Northern Plains have the nation's highest rates of obesity and diabetes. In many counties in those regions, rates of diagnosed diabetes exceed 10 percent and obesity prevalence is more than 30 percent." Statistic found over at the CDC obesity web page

Also, "the prevalence of childhood obesity in the U.S. has more than tripled over the past three decades and remains high regardless of the age, sex, race and ethnicity and socioeconomic standing." Statistic from Medpage today on childhood obesity.

This free webinar is offered over at Nurse.com has a goal to familiarize nurses with the growing epidemic of obesity among adults in the United States. The course takes about 1 hour.
