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

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.
