Perspectives: Stomping Out Childhood Obesity

Mar 30, 2017

Leon County’s Eighth Annual “Stomp Out” event is set for April 8th at the Tallahassee Museum.  Begun as part of the community’s campaign against juvenile Type II Diabetes, it now focuses on reversing the exploding trend of childhood obesity.  To talk about that epidemic and the many community resources arrayed to fight it are: Nick Maddox, executive director of the Foundation for Leon County Schools; Courtney Atkins, executive director of Whole Child Leon; Dawn Springs, director of the Tallahassee Memorial Healthcare Metabolic Health Center; and joining the conversation by phone, Tallahassee Pediatrician Dr. Yamati Singh.
