It is certainly not news that obesity is a growing health problem in this country and in the city of Baltimore. What is alarming, however, is that obesity has a disproportionately higher rate and impact on low-income, non-white populations in America. The city of Baltimore is no exception with a 36 percent obesity rate, including a 45.3 percent rate among African-Americans. Our goal in Baltimore is to decrease the number of adults who are obese by 15 percent by 2015. We have the opportunity to provide our communities with the tools and support they need to improve their health and slow this trend for the next generation.
