Whittier College Students Tackle Childhood Obesity

Tuesday, March 24, 2009

More than 50 Whittier College students are partnering with local fitness expert Michael Seril to show a group of 200 overweight grade schoolers the joys of being physically active. This is part of the Advocating Children's Fitness Fair that will take place at Whittier College on April 18. 

"This is a wonderful opportunity to bring awareness of the growing problems of obesity in youngsters, and the lack of P.E. in area elementary schools," said Kinesiology professor Kath Barlow in the Whittier Daily News.
