Inland Empire, CA. (PRWEB) July 04, 2012
After several studies including ones from the National Institutes of Health showed that there are ways to prevent type I diabetes in young people, the International Reach and Teach Institute launched their Day of Play event, in an effort to provide health education and guidance to at-risk children. The event hopes to help children in Inland Empire, California get educated about healthy lifestyle habits in a fun and engaging environment that will facilitate learning.
The monthly Day of Play event will bring Inland Empire community children and parents together to play, get exercise and learn about being healthier and stopping preventable health issues like diabetes. With childhood obesity and related conditions on a rise, the Day of Play event will aim to target young people most at risk for falling victim to these issues. The event is being spearheaded by registered nurse John Currie III, founder of the International Reach and Teach Institute and will educate children and parent participants about the risks of diabetes and other preventative health issues.
The company hopes that together with the diabetes studies, parents and children will be willing to look at the preemptive approaches that can stop diabetes from happening. The Day of Play events will be held each month in Inland Empire and are open to any child and parent who wishes to attend.
