About this Grantee

Through “CHANGE”, Mr. Ramsey and his partners hope to challenge the diet and exercise practices of their rural students and to increase student health and self-esteem. Students receive nutrition instruction, graph their lifestyle habits, track walking distance with pedometers, and chart their weight loss. Working with a nutritionist, students discuss the nutrition content of foods and learn how food preparation affects nutritional value. At the culmination of the program, students provide a summary presentation of their data and successes.
