National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month: Building a Healthy Future for Our Children
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates one in five children in the US is obese. This is a major public health problem since children with obesity are at higher risk for other chronic health conditions and diseases, such as asthma, sleep apnea, bone and joint problems, type 2 diabetes, and heart disease. According to the New England Journal of Medicine, today’s generation of children is the first that will have a shorter lifespan than that of their parents.
In recognition of National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month, KnoWEwell sits down with Jyl Steinback, Executive Director of Shape Up US, Inc, and Board Member, Dr. Scott Stoll, discuss how we can make an impact on our nation's health through The Hip Hop Healthy Heart Program for Children™, which integrates self-discovery and self-esteem techniques, in addition to health and wellness information.
