The Consortium to Lower Obesity in Chicago Children was "praised by the American Medical Association as it begins a two-day obesity summit here Tuesday." Due to the great reaction to the consortium's efforts, the AMA is taking note of the efforts to curb childhood obesity on a community level. Some projects promoted by the CLOCC include dance and yoga workshops for children and offering free bike locks to kids to encourage riding bikes to school.
