Maren Stewart, the president and CEO of Live Well Colorado, says despite the high marks from the "F as in Fat" report, there is still work to be done.
"We are trying to approach obesity prevention from a very high-level systemic process, knowing that we need to make the places that we live, learn, work and play conducive to healthy choices," Stewart said.
She says there are environmental and policy changes needed to truly reduce the obesity epidemic.
The "F as in Fat" report comes from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and Trust for America's Health. To read the report, visit http://www.healthyamericans.org/report/100/.
