Congratulations to advocacy volunteer Hilary Schae Lavorgna for “walking the walk” in the efforts to fight obesity! A student in Exercise Science at the University of Vermont, Hilary helped the American Heart Association lead an obesity workshop at a youth conference in Burlington this past month. We discussed the need to address childhood obesity via legislative efforts like our community use of school buildings and grounds bill. And Hilary showed middle school students how they could easily fit fitness into their day in ten minute blocks and ask for changes to make them healthier.
I agree, thank you for your advocacy.
