Report: Local Strategies to Combat Obesity

Your Committee on Global and Public Health has just submitted a report to AMA Staff for review.  Titled  Physician Based Education to Combat Obesity on the Local Level, this report stems from a resolution referred for study at the Interim 2010 meeting in San Diego.  Keep your eyes peeled for the final publication of this report at Interim 2011!

Included in the report is a review of the current Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP -- the new generation of "food stamps") and a cursory review of many community based initiatives which have been successful at combating obesity and improving health in various communities.
