MEMORANDUM

Posted: June 6, 2018 11:37 AM
From: Representative Donna Bullock
To: All House members
Subject: Resolution designating the Month of June 2018 as “Healthy Living and Healthy Eating Month” in Pennsylvania
 
In the near future, I plan to introduce a Resolution designating the Month of June 2018 as “Healthy Living and Healthy Eating Month” in Pennsylvania.

As many of you know, obesity is second only to smoking among the top preventable causes of death in our nation. Acting in concert with medical comorbidities including heart disease and diabetes, obesity is set to become the number one preventable cause of death in our nation. Nearly two out of three American’s are overweight or obese. These figures amount to a 50% increase from just over a decade ago.

It is with the motivation of promoting a healthier lifestyle and curbing the increase in obesity in mind, that I am offering this Resolution. If you have any questions, please contact my Research Analyst -- Takesha Latham at 717-787-3480 or via email at tlatham@pahouse.net
