Scale Back Alabama
Officials with the Alabama Hospital Association, the Alabama Department of Public Health and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Alabama kicked off the state’s largest weight-loss program, this week. In its ninth year, Scale Back Alabama is a free program designed to address the state’s obesity. Those 18 and older can now participate in teams of two, rather than teams of four, and they can go online now to self-register. At the end of the contest, the names of all individuals and teams who lose at least 10 pounds –that’s one pound a week-will be placed in a drawing for cash prizes.
