Memorial North Park Supports Healthy Habits for Kids


Memorial North Park Hospital, Hixson, Tenn., is supporting a pilot program of the Hamilton County Department of Education that is being launched in seven schools this year. The program’s goal is to positively influence the eating and activity habits of elementary school students while those habits are still in the formation stage. If the pilot program is successful, the program could be introduced in all Hamilton County elementary schools as early as next year.
