Working to reduce childhood obesity

Missoula County Commissioner Jean Curtiss recently returned from a symposium in Washington D.C featuring First Lady Michelle Obama that was designed to let elected officials share strategies effective in addressing childhood obesity.
     "Let's Move!" is a public/private partnership designed to enhance and build healthy environments for children and adults.  

  It's a project of special importance to Mrs. Obama who's made reducing childhood obesity a priority.
     In tonight's feature interview with Edward O'Brien, Commissioner Jean Curtiss explains that there are few glimmers of hope when it comes to obesity, but that it still remains a very troubling issue.

Edward O’Brien first landed at Montana Public Radio three decades ago as a news intern while attending the UM School of Journalism. He covers a wide range of stories from around the state.
