Obesity Numbers Go the Right Way — Lower
Some good news came out today from our partners at CLOCC. On March 16, CLOCC released new prevalance data for Chicago children that indicate a reduction in obesity for children at school entry – from 24% to 22% – from 2003 – 2008. In addition, CLOCC released the first-ever data on Chicago children entering sixth grade and found an obesity rate of 28% for this age group. The full press release is available here. Data around the country has shown a leveling off, but this is the first community around the nation that is showing a reduction. Congratulations to CLOCC and all of its many partners! We're proud to be a founding member. Find out more about CLOCC at clocc.net
