3 Huntington schools join child obesity campaign
Question of the Day
HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) - Three schools in Huntington are participating in a national childhood obesity awareness campaign.
The campaign kicks off Monday at Highlawn Elementary School. It will begin May 23 at Guyandotte Elementary School and May 27 at Altizer Elementary Achool.
Forty other schools across the nation have committed to participating in the campaign.
Dr. Monika Sawhney with Marshall University says the campaign is a collaborative effort by the American Association of Physicians of Indian Origin, public health students at Marshall, Marshall’s School of Medicine and local physicians.
Sawhney says organizers want to teach children the importance of nutrition and daily activity to help them avoid obesity-related long-term health issues.
