On March 17th I was contacted by Melody Barnes, Assistant to the President for Domestic Policy, and asked to submit my ideas for solving our country's childhood obesity epidemic. The deadline was March 26th, so there wasn't much time to get back to her with the solution to what is arguably the most difficult behavioral health problem our population has. But I was sure I could do it. I had been preparing for this job my whole life.
