|Abstract:||Obesity is one of the main concerns for medical professionals, community leaders, and parents in American Samoa. Studies reveal the increasing number of overweight children in American Samoa. Most children attend public schools. This study assessed if the environment surrounding schools are food deserts, and therefore contribute to unhealthy diets.|
