Fighting Obesity In Mississippi

Mississippi is reported to have the highest percentage of children who are obese, and is first in the heart disease rate. The Delta region is leading the way in most categories of unhealthy living.

The Rev. Michael O. Minor of Oak Hill Baptist in North Mississippi has been fighting against obesity from his pulpit for over a decade. Change has come slowly, but his patience is paying off.

The First Baptist Church in Clarksdale operates a “No Fry Zone” kitchen, and a new community garden can be found behind Seek Well Baptist Church in Lulu, Mississippi.
