At ProMedica, we don’t just treat the symptoms; we work to prevent illness by promoting wellness and healthy lifestyles. Several of our educational programs under the Fields of Green initiative are designed to raise awareness about proper nutrition and exercise and to increase access to healthier food in under-served areas. Through these programs, parents and their children in our communities receive the tools they need to make smart decisions – and obtain the resources they need – to invest in their own well-being.
America's Move to Raise Healthier Kids
Let's Move! is an ambitious program with an important goal: to solve the epidemic of childhood obesity within a generation.
The initiative — championed by First Lady Michelle Obama and the White House — focuses on providing support to parents to help them make healthier choices for their families, ensuring that children have access to healthy meals at schools, increasing the amount of time that children engage in physical activity, and making healthy food more affordable for families.
Healthy Kids Conversation Map® Education Program
The Healthy Kids Conversation Map® program was developed with Healthy Interactions Inc. and was designed by subject experts to empower elementary school children and their parents to make good decisions related to eating and physical activity. These maps were developed on the same principles as the very successful diabetes conversation maps also designed by Healthy Interactions Inc. Our trained staff will lead these programs free of charge at a site in your community within our 27-county service area in northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan.
