FitBus Provides Healthy Living Education
La Donna Hendricks, MD, of Pure Joy Pediatrics in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, grew tired of witnessing the decline of children’s health. She realized this was largely the result of inadequate education and lack of exposure to healthy options. To fight the problem, she worked with Aurora Engineering to build the “FitBus,” a “mobile health unit focused on educating our youth using nutrition, exercise and life lessons all intended to combat childhood obesity and promote healthy living in urban communities.”
The FitBus will travel to various schools and other locations to provide education to children and parents. Together with volunteers and through partnerships with other local organizations, FitBus will also provide online education programs. Ryan Halvorson is the associate editor of IDEA Fitness Journal.
