Summary
"There is an epidemic obesity in America, and educators are ideally situated to identify, intervene, educate, and support overweight students who are headed for long-term illness or premature death. Such an effort will require changes in the way school's operate. These changes can be implemented with a low-cost budget and by restructuring staff and resources that are currently in place." "Fibkins proposes a Circle of Wellness model for schools that includes an intervention effort to promote a health-oriented cafeteria; increased physical activity; healthy levels of blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugar, life-skills training groups offered by counselors, outreach to parents; and easy access and referral to community health, mental health, and recreation resources. Teen Obesity will be of interest to administrators, teachers, and parents."--BOOK JACKET
