Both childhood obesity and trauma are linked to shortened life expectancy, by 18 years and 20 years respectively. The prevalence of both of these conditions is higher in children of race, with special needs, and living in poverty. The good news is that unlike many health issues, the long term impacts of childhood obesity and trauma can be prevented and treated.
With the support of caring people like yourselves, SKH will be able to meet our two goals.
Continue providing much needed treatment for under-served children and families in our community for obesity and trauma.
Launch our new virtual health promotion program: Dr. Patricia’s Health Club: Being Healthy from A-Z which is designed to heal, help, and inspire early learners impacted by the Pandemic.
We believe that every child deserves a healthy future and greatly appreciate your support toward our efforts.
