Mayor Karl Dean: Health Crusader!

Tennessee currently has the 2nd highest obesity rate of any state overall, 4th for childhood obesity, and Nashville specifically has an obesity rate of 30%.  Mayor Karl Dean is sick and tired of those numbers, and he's taking action to get the city up and moving.  The mayor discusses his health initiatives, including community walks to promote more active living, expanding the Greenway system and adding parks, continuing efforts to make the city more bike-able, and how businesses are getting involved with the Workplace Challenge.  To start getting active yourself, visit Nashville.gov/Parks.
