FIA Receives Children’s Hospital & Medical Center Grant

 Families in Action (FIA) received a grant this year (2020) to address Childhood Obesity with our partner, Children’s Hospital & Medical Center.

According to the recent Community Health Needs Assessment, co-sponsored by Children’s Hospital & Medical Center, childhood obesity ranked as the number one concern of parents in the greater Omaha Metropolitan area. Childhood obesity is a health crisis on the national level, as well, affecting 17 percent of children and teens in the United States. 

FIA is grateful for the support of the Children’s Learning Collaborative, Dr. Corinne Hanson and Dr. Barb Braden for their assistance in this endeavor, and for the commitment and dedication of Children’s in working with our organization, participants and community to address childhood obesity.
