Money To Battle Obesity

Carteret County is receiving a grant to fight obesity. It will share $150,000 with eight other county agencies as the state works to improve the health of its residents.

North Carolina recently ranked 16th in the nation in adult obesity, according to the NC Department of Health and Human Services. The state ranks 5th for overweight adolescents.

The grants are part of the Eat Smart, Move More initiative.
