Call to Action

Identify the source   and evaluate the impact of the report, in relation to the media attention and   focus on the topic of obesity. How did the report and media coverage create a   sense of urgency to move the audience from complacency to action? In what   ways do persuasive arguments and presentations directed toward general   audiences create a call to action for reform?

  Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims   with examples from required material(s) and/or other scholarly sources, and   properly cite any references. Respond to at least two of your classmates’   posts by Day 7.
