The Surgeon General's Call To Action To Prevent and Decrease Overweight and Obesity
Vision for the Future
This Surgeon General’s Call To Action To Prevent and Decrease Overweight and Obesity underscores the tremendous health impact that overweight and obesity have on the United States. Through widespread action on the part of all Americans, this Call To Action aims to catalyze a process that will reduce the prevalence of overweight and obesity on a nationwide scale. Without support and investment from a broad array of public and private partners, these efforts will not succeed. With such support, however, there exist few limitations on the potential of this effort to improve the health of individuals, families, communities, and, ultimately, the Nation as a whole.
