What is the extent of the obesity problem in the United States?

The Summerville Community Coalition has asked each member to gather some information about specific health issues as they work toward creating a healthier community. You were asked to focus on obesity. After reviewing the materials listed in the Background Information, please write a 2-page paper to address the following: 1. What is the extent of the obesity problem in the United States? 2. What individual, social, and environmental factors have led to the epidemic of obesity in the US? Specify at least one of each. 3. What strategies can the Summerville Community Coalition use to combat obesity at the community level? You can discuss strategies for neighborhoods, schools, worksites, or healthcare facilities (just choose one).
