ANNAPOLIS, Md. -
Schools play a crucial role in the fight against childhood obesity.
On Friday, officials with the Anne Arundel County Public School System are doing their part to get educated about this issue.
They'll be watching the documentary "Weight of the Nation", focusing on the childhood obesity part.
There will be a discussion about how the district can offer better food choices to students and what more can be done to get them exercising during the school day.
