[u]Samoa obesity push[/u]
The United States has asked the American Samoan government to implement a plan to reduce obesity in the territory.
The request has come from Dr Saleia Afele-Faamuli, a Samoan who oversees national science and education programs for the United States Department of Agriculture.
She says there's s enough scientific data to show that Samoans are among the most obese people in the world.
Dr Afele-Faamuli has been in American Samoa for two weeks, attending meetings and promoting a health plan called the Island-wide Strategic Planning and Performance Against Obesity for American Samoa
