Hula-hooping former congressman weighs in on obesity

altWE HEAR: While he won’t be won’t be hula hooping to present it, former Motion Pictures Association of America President Dan Glickman is one of four big names poised to release the Bipartisan Policy Center’s report on health and obesity Tuesday.

Glickman, a senior fellow at the D.C.-based non-profit who served as a Democratic congressman for Kansas and Agriculture Secretary under the Clinton Administration, knows a thing or two about fitness, as evidenced by this photo of him showing off his killer hula hooping skills at an event last year.

In addition to Glickman, former Secretary of Health and Human Services Donna Shalala, ex-Secretary of Agriculture and UNICEF director Ann Veneman, and former Utah governor Mike Leavitt (R) will highlight five recommendations to getting a leaner, meaner nation in their report: “Lots to Lose: How America’s Health and Obesity Crisis Threatens our Economic Future.”

The analysis, part of the Bipartisan Policy Center’s nutrition and physical activity initiative, will be presented at its downtown office Tuesday morning.
