One in four Wyoming residents are obese, pushing the scales far beyond simply being overweight. Monday night in the Science Center at Sheridan College, Registered Dietitian Georgia Boley presented the program “Hunger and Obesity...Making the Connection.”

Attended by a handful, Boley said part of the problem involves food insecurity, especially for the 11% of people living in poverty in Wyoming.

Nutritional priorities must change.

In the United States, one-third of adults are obese.
