Charlottesville, VA – A new University of Virginia study, conducted with the Washington based Urban Institute offers a host of suggestions for combating America's obesity crisis, including a change in tax structure that would make healthy eating less expensive, and unhealthy foods harder to come by.
Dr. Tim Garson, a pediatric cardiologist, is one of the authors. Dr. Garson also serves as Provost at UVA.
Richmond, VA – Todd Gilbert is a member of the Virginia House of Delegates from Shenandoah County. It was in his region that a series of tractor trailer related crashes closed down interstate 81 for more than 12 hours one day late last month.
One of those crashes killed two people when their passenger vehicle burst into flames.
Gilbert says that kind of tragedy has been happening "just too often" in his district.
