Are you ready to be EMPOWERED?

Childhood obesity facts for the United States are sobering: Childhood obesity is on the rise.

According to The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention more than 12% of US children between the ages of 2 and 19 are obese. This obesity is not just a case of baby fat; the effects are long term. Overweight children have a 70% chance of becoming overweight or obese adults.

How can we reverse this trend?  What can parents and role models do to help our children live  healthy lifestyles that promote well being and fitness? 

Change starts by being informed, engaged and EMPOWERED.  Working together we can combat childhood obesity and diabetes. SBISD invites you to join us for a very special night dedicated to this topic - SBISD's Night of Empowerment Event.

The event, on Oct. 16 at Northbrook High School, will focus on childhood diabetes and obesity. Staff, students, parents and community members are encouraged to attend.
