President Obama Supports National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month

On Wednesday, President Barack Obama signed a proclamation declaring September 2010 as National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month. President Obama’s backing of National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month further emphasizes the importance of eliminating childhood obesity and ensuring the health and well-being of our country’s future.

President Obama’s proclamation states: “There are concrete steps we can take right away as concerned parents, caregivers, educators, loved ones, and a Nation to ensure that our children are able to live full and active lives. During National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month, I urge all Americans to take action to meet our national goal of solving the problem of childhood obesity within a generation.”

ACSM joins a wide array of organizations to organize and promote Childhood Obesity Awareness Month, educating parents, policy makers and others about the problem and encouraging preventive action on childhood obesity.
