I am passionate about promoting healthy lifestyles in our population of kids here in Idaho and across the nation. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) over 1/3 of the population of kids today are overweight or obese. Childhood Obesity is linked with many diseases now that once were only seen in adults such as high blood pressure, diabetes, fatty liver diease, high cholesterol to name a few. I know we can change these statistics .... WE HAVE TO CHANGE these statistics or the quality of life for our loved ones will be severely compromised!
Currently, I am the medical director and co-founder of a healthy lifestyles program called, YEAH!, which is a program designed to work with families and kids struggling to get healthy. it is rewarding to see the effort and results of those who are ready to make a healthy lifestyle change.
That's why I have joined efforts with Team Healthy Kids for the New York City Marathon on November 2, 2014 and have set a personal goal to raise $3K!
The kids and families we work with need programs like YEAH! to help educatethem and motivate them in their journey for better health. Please help me impact childhood and adolescent obesity prevention by pledging to support Team Healthy Kids. You can pledge directly to my fundraising site by using the link below:
