STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) – Oklahoma State University has a $3.9 million plan to address obesity in two rural Oklahoma counties. The Tulsa World reports that the Curbing Obesity program will use a five-year federal grant to offer cooking classes and distribute healthy food options in Muskogee and Adair counties. More than 40 percent of residents in those counties are obese. The university’s Center for Health Systems Innovation will run the program with other local organizations.
