Getting Kids Back on Track to Health

. February 27, 2014.

Blanchard Valley Health System was awarded a one-year grant of $20,000 to develop the program NEW (Nutrition, Exercise, Wellness) YOU. The program is designed to help children who have been diagnosed as obese or severely overweight. Participants work one-on-one (along with a parent), with a dietitian, personal trainer, and social worker to develop personal fitness, nutrition, and self-esteem goals.

The program is currently in session and meets once a month every third Wednesday from 4:15-6pm. For more information, contact Caughman Health Center Pediatrics at 419-427-0809.
