Rep. Stewart Barlow (R-Fruit Heights) says that obesity needs to be tackled not only at an individual level but also at a community level. In order to promote awareness of growing obesity rates in Utah, Rep. Barlow proposed HCR2, which is a resolution to recognize obesity as an important public health issue.
