Healthcare

We believe every child, no matter where they live, should have access to preventative healthcare services.

A recent study found that if a child is overweight by the time she is five, she is four times as likely to be overweight by the time she is in 8th grade. The need for early intervention is essential to long-term healthy weight status.
