Abstract

In Vermont, about 22% of adults are obese, which has led to many medical co-morbidities and costs the state an estimate of $141 million annually. It is well known that diet and exercise can help tackle this problem yet the vast majority of obese adults do not meet CDC guidelines for physical activity level. This project aims to evaluate barriers and access to diet and exercise resources in a subset of obese patients in Waterbury, VT.
