The purpose of this paper is to bring awareness of obesity along with risk cardiovascular disease to the community of Red Oak, Texas, 75154, population of 11,560 with 94 % urban and 6% rural (City-Data.com, 2014). Two CHN diagnoses noted within this community include risk of cardiovascular disease among the community in 75154 related to observations of obesity, diabetes diagnoses (may result in inability to access health care) and risk of obesity among the community in 75154 related to observations of inactivity, reports of arthritis, observations of multiple fast food places located in one central area. Multiple fast food restaurants are available and easily accessible, and no community members were seen exercising outdoors. Two gyms are available for joining for physical fitness, parking lots were seen with only a few cars at different times of the day and week. EMS as per fireman MH, (MH, personal communication, January 19, 2019) responds to numerous calls to those patients with obesity and/or diabetes. School teachers, as per TG, (TG, personal communication, January 19, 2019), are noting an increase in the number of teenagers with increased weight issues due to the availability of fast food places near the school grounds. The adult diabetes rate in Ellis County is 8.3% compared to the adult diabetes rate in Texas at 8.9% (City-Data.com, 2016).
