Dietetics Students Helping in the Ashland Community

AU Dietetics students will once again be working with the Ashland YMCA as part of the Kidz Fit program. This is an after-school intervention program, incorporating dietary and exercise instructions for children identified as "at-risk" for weight-related concerns. Past programs have included children age 8 to 12 years of age. Children become eligible for participating in the Kidz Fit program based on BMI and physical activity assessments. Dietetics students will be conducting lessons throughout the school year focusing on developing healthy eating behaviors and habits. To find out more about this program contact Dr. David Vanata, RD, LD, Director of the Dietetics Program or the Ashland YMCA.
