Ways to Enhance Children's Activity and Nutrition
At a November 2007 news conference, Ivonne Borrero, mother of 2, describes how the We Can! parents' program has helped her family learn to eat healthier and be more physically active. We Can! (Ways to Enhance Children's Activity and Nutrition) is a science-based national education program developed by NHLBI to help children ages 8 to 13 stay at a healthy weight by improving food choices, increasing physical activity, and reducing recreational screen time. The news conference announced the expansion of We Can! through a partnership with the Association of Children's Museums. Additional speakers (pictured, left to right) included Dr. Elias Zerhouni, NIH Director; Dr. Steven K. Galson, Acting U.S. Surgeon General; Lou Casagrande, president and CEO of Boston Children's Museum, which hosted the event.
