This free, nine-week program will include nutrition, exercise and
behavior modification components, such as self-esteem building,
emotional pitfalls and stress management. Participants will receive
handouts, and incentives will be offered for homework and program
completion.
Because parental involvement is necessary for achieving program goals,
at least one parent or legal guardian is required to attend each session
with their child. Parents also are expected to implement the principles
presented, including shopping for and cooking healthier foods,
participating in their child's exercise program and helping their child
meet established goals.
An informational meeting is scheduled 6 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 25, for
registrants and their parents. The program will be held each Thursday
from 6 to 8 p.m. beginning Sept. 1 and ending Oct. 27. Sessions will be
held in Lake Regional Hospital's third floor conference rooms.
