You can learn a lot about your community, state and country. Open records help people keep government in check and help them better understand how government affects their lives.
Each week the Missourian will feature another open record. This week:
The records: This document from the state's Department of Health and Senior Services presents Missouri's obesity problem and outlines a plan of action through nutrition and physical activity.
Why you’d want them: Obesity is a national epidemic and has been growing exponentially in Missouri the past decade.
Where you get the records: The report is available as a PDF online from the department's website. Select the third item, Obesity State: A Closer Look at Obesity in Missouri
How much it will cost: The information is free.
