September is National Childhood Obesity Awareness month! Childhood obesity has hit an all time high in the United States and is especially scary because it can lead to heath issues most commonly found in adults such as diabetes, heart disease, and high blood pressure! The most encouraging thing though is that childhood obesity is preventable! It’s suggested that parents encourage healthy snacking by providing fruits and veggies to reach for first while also finding fun ways to incorporate exercise into daily life! So, instead of huddling around the TV after dinner, try going for a walk as a family!

Chapin Clinic volunteers recently marched in the Chapin Labor Day parade and hosted a booth providing hypertension and diabetes screenings. Thanks to the Sisters of Charity in providing funds needed to help make this screening service possible!
