Eagle Telemedicine and CareSource team up with Local Atlanta Nonprofit on Summer Camp
Atlanta Nonprofit LHTYF Welcomes Eagle Telemedicine and CareSource as Partners in 2023 for Healthy Kids Summer Camp™
By: Live Healthy & Thrive Youth Foundation, Inc.
The Healthy Kids Summer Camp™ will run the week of June 26, and focuses on interactive health lessons taught by professionals in the areas of medicine, healthcare, fitness, and culinary arts. The goal of the program is to teach children the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle throughout their childhood so that they can have a solid foundation for better health as young adults.
According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), obesity currently affects four out of 10 Americans. While weight and overall health are not always connected, obesity is often considered a cause of chronic medical conditions, including type 2 diabetes, some forms of cancer, and heart disease. "Educating children at an early age on the dangers of obesity, diabetes, and hypertension are critical if we want to see the next generation have healthier lives and outcomes," said Dr. Lori A. Manns, president of Live Healthy & Thrive Youth Foundation, Inc.
Live Healthy & Thrive Youth Foundation strives to teach children how to live healthy, balanced lifestyles to avoid future health risks. One of LHTYF's core goals is to grow the number of children enrolled in their health programs. To achieve this goal, LHTYF produces the Healthy Kids Summer Camp™ and other programs to empower children to lead their healthiest lives.
The Healthy Kids Summer Camp is sponsored by Eagle Telemedicine and CareSource. To learn more about the programs offered by Live Healthy & Thrive Youth Foundation, visit www.livehealthyandthriveyouth.org. Press interested in covering the camp, may contact Ms. O'Kelly via the website.
