Sidewalk University Nutrition & Health
The mission of Sidewalk University's School of Nutrition & Health is to improve people's nutritional habits, general health, and overall wellness.
Obesity has reached epidemic proportions across the nation. While most epidemics can be defeated with a pill or a vaccine, obesity requires people to change the way they eat and live. In many ways, this makes it much harder to overcome since there is no quick fix. Education and action is the key to success.
Failing to win the battle against obesity will mean premature death and disability for an increasingly large segment of our nation. By 2015, some have predicted that the root causes of the obesity epidemic, poor nutrition and physical inactivity, will be among the leading underlying causes of preventable deaths.
Obesity is a problem not just for adults, but for children as well. If the battle isn't won soon, it will become a war that will claim millions of lives for generations to come.
