WV Rolls Out BMI Wheel Project

West Virginia and Unicare rolls out a simple solution to fighting the obesity problem in West Virginia (WV ranks as the #3 heaviest state). The project involves giving West Virginia physicians a small body mass index (BMI) calculator wheel and training in how to use the wheel to recognize obesity earlier, especially in children.

Thanks to Jane Sarasohn-Kahn at Health Populi for the tip on the project.
