Healthy Habits for Hampton Roads
The Healthy Habits for Hampton Roads initiative aims to increase community awareness about the issue of obesity and overweight children and to empower citizens to work toward solutions individually and collectively. Childhood obesity has been a primary focus of our work, but the overall goals are to support efforts to create more healthy environments and encourage healthier lifestyles for all ages.
Overweight Kids in Crisis
This half-hour documentary, produced by WHRO, examines the epidemic of childhood obesity. Childhood health professionals paint a grim picture for the future of overweight children unless we begin to make systemic changes that support more healthy choices. Local, state and national childhood health experts discuss steps we can take to turn the tide.
Surviving Abundance was produced in collaboration with the Consortium for Infant and Child Health (CINCH), a community partnership to promote health and prevent disease among all children in Hampton Roads.
