ABA is proud to support the United States Conference of Mayors (USCM) 2014 Childhood Obesity Prevention Awards announced on January 23, 2014 in Washington, D.C. The awards went to cities with outstanding programs that encourage healthy weight through balanced diet choices and regular physical activity.
First place in the small city category went to York, Pa., Mayor Kim Bracey for her "Eat Play Breathe: York's Childhood Wellness Initiative." Bracey's program incorporates wellness into the mission and culture of each city school. Specifically, the program increases nutrition education and physical activity in city schools.
