More people are overweight and unhealthy in this country every year- and Vermont is no exception. How can we educate about obesity, diet and nutrition without shaming or marginalizing people who are overweight?
We discuss Vermont’s Healthy Weight Initiative with Attorney General Bill Sorrell and Heath Commissioner Harry Chen. Plus, why Vermont has joined in a lawsuit against the NRC over the storage of spent nuclear fuel.
Obesity is rapidly approaching tobacco addiction as the leading preventable public health problem facing Vermonters. We discuss obesity with Dr. Bob McLellan of Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center. Plus, VPR’s Bob Kinzel looks at Governor-elect Peter Shumlin’s
new staff. And we get a peak at what goes into the official portrait of Governor Jim Douglas.
