Obesity rates in Wyoming could rise from 25% now to 57% of the population by 2030. That's according to a study by Trust for America’s Health and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. The report predicts that most states will see comparable increases.

Chronic Disease Epidemiologist for Wyoming’s Department of Health, Joe Grandpre, says Wyoming doesn't have state-run programs dedicated to obesity prevention, but initiatives like heart and diabetes programs address it.
