ShapeMichigan Expo Aims to Curb Startling Obesity Statistics

Posted: Updated:

Munson Health Care and Priority Health have partnered to offer the ShapeMichigan Expo. Michigan is the 5th fattest state in the U.S., and 1 in 3 children in the country are considered overweight or obese. Tomorrow's local expo is being held to address how we can curb those statistics.

Several vendors like gyms, TART Trails, and the YMCA will be on-hand to help people get healthy. There will also be video screenings, helpful resources, and prizes.

9and10's own, Michelle Dunaway, will be the Emcee at the event. It begins at 5:00, tomorrow night. The expo is being held at Great Wolf Lodge in Traverse City.
