CDC campaigns, the numbers of deaths and diseases related to obesity have substantially been reduced. Michelle Obama has been using this approach to reach a broader audience. Despite her status quo, she was determined to reach as many people as she could, and she was so much up to the task that she would do anything to pass on her real message. The task force initiated by Michelle Obama majorly put their focus on the physical exercise, marketing, gardening, school feeding program, the media and the advertisement and any other thing which would be beneficial towards sensitizing people on the dangers of obesity (Morrow, 2018).

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
