Obesity in Children: This research project will be launched by ADAPTING. It is designed to identify helpful solutions and methods to eliminate diabetes in occurring in children by finding various strategies that encourage children on their own to adhere to healthy diets and exercise.

A natural normal method of adherence to a healthy diet and exercise program will be a natural format to healthy normal living for kids.

Diabetes if undetected will eventually lead to blindness, limb loss, kidney failure and premature death.

Today diabetes is accuring in youth in epidemic proportions and needs to be effectively addressed.

Successful correction programs need to be identified and implemented to overcome this disastrous problem.

An aim of ADAPTING is to reintegrate people with disabilities into society. Not only is work an important goal but the restoration of self-esteem, confidence and recreation must also become an important part of a disabled persons life.

 

 

 

The family must learn how to cope with the new situation. There is normally a major adjustment for everyone. Questions need to be answered. New amputees can suffer from grief and depression and find peer support a very crucial activity for recovery. Won't you consider helping the Adapting program. Call today and find out how YOU can help.
