News Reports on Gabe Obesity Costs Research

 Bloomberg Businessweek and the southern Maine’s coastal newspaper group carried an Associated Press article about a study by University of Maine economist Todd Gabe that estimates the current annual medical costs of obesity in Maine were nearly $453 million in 2011 and could reach $1.2 billion over the next 20 years, if current trends continue. The Medical Xpress website carried a news release on the research, and Channel 7 (WVII) in Bangor interviewed Gabe for a 10 p.m. Nov. 4 news report.
