Bill Clinton Speaks Out Against Childhood Obesity

Wednesday, 17 Feb 2010 03:30 PM

 

NEW YORK — Bill Clinton is officially back at work.

Just days after undergoing a procedure to unclog a blocked artery, the former president is talking about childhood obesity, which can lead to early heart disease, diabetes and other health problems.

Clinton is giving an update Wednesday afternoon about the Alliance for a Healthier Generation. It works to promote heart health.

Clinton underwent the artery procedure last Thursday. He went home from the hospital Friday, telling reporters that he felt great and had already done "a couple miles on the treadmill."

On Tuesday, Clinton attended the Pennsylvania funeral for U.S. Rep. John Murtha.
