Obesity is a disease that affects over 115 million Americans. A national crisis driven by an epidemic that has spiraled out of control. Every community across the country is impacted by obesity. It is the literal state of America. Over 300,000 Americans die of obesity-related causes every year. We cannot allow obesity to undermine the well-being both of individuals and our nation.

Together, let’s #GetFedUp

Let’s take back control. Let’s end the epidemic by 2040.
