Our Youth Can Fight Obesity
Dr. John E. Maupin Jr., was recently featured in the Atlanta Journal Constitution (AJC) in the article, "Our Youth Can Fight Obesity." Please find an excerpt of the article below.
"Something dramatic happened a few years back when an elementary school in DeKalb County began teaching students about nutrition, health and fitness. The children became interested in the quality of the food they were eating and in exercise. Soon, they were telling their parents what to put in their lunchboxes and dragging them to early morning fitness classes at school."
