Dogwood City Chapter: Keep It Moving: Childhood Obesity Prevention in the African-American Community Atlanta, GA - Dogwood City has selected M. Agnes Jones Elementary School to serve as its community partner for the childhood obesity curriculum program. M. Agnes Jones is located in a predominately African-American neighborhood near the Atlanta University Center. The Dogwood City Chapter will be partnering with the West End Medical Center, Inc. and will provide a health advocate and pediatrician to assist in the implementation of education sessions. The program will utilize the Kaiser Permanente Theatre company to teach the children topics outlined in the curriculum. Recognizing that physical fitness is an essential key to maintaining a healthy lifestyle with the assistance of the physical education teacher, the program seeks to introduce the children to long distance running with the culmination of their training resulting in a one-mile run 5k race.
