Due to the increased awareness of obesity and diabetes in children brought about by the media, we choose to embark on the development of a youth wellness center. The focus of our center will be to prevent and decrease the incidence of these situations. We will also promote healthy behavior in children, which will lead to a healthy adult lifestyle.
There is a dire need in our community to initiate and promote healthy behavior in children as they are becoming a health risk in our society. The mission of our wellness center is to help create a positive self-image in our youth as well as educate families on the benefits of healthy lifestyle choices.
