The complete study hasnt been released yet, but I find it interesting that one of the key authors is from U of Pitt. I wonder if he would be interested in helping quantify the impact of Penn Ave. etc?

FWIW, Jakicic isn’t one of the authors of the paper, he’s “speaking on behalf of” The Obesity Society, the professional association for academics who study obesity causes & treatment, where the paper will be presented.
