Colorado State University and Colorado University are collaborating on a study on childhood obesity.

They aren't going to be looking for the causes of it. Instead, they will be offering strategies to at-risk families to see what works in battling the problem.

The team, headed by Laura Bellows of CSU’s Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition, have funding from U.S. Department of Agriculture for the Healthy Environments Study, or HEROs. I spoke with her about the study, and what it could mean to Coloradans.
