Hungry teens head for Greensboro

The Cooperative Extension Program at A&T will be hosting an elite group of teenagers from across the state Nov. 12 to 15. The teens will be coming for training in intervention measures for hypertension, diabetes, stroke, and kidney disease. Extension health and nutrition specialists are using a $50,000 grant from the Walmart Foundation to train the “Force of 100” in nutrition, food safety, physical fitness and proper exercise techniques.

Following their training this week, the teens will be expected to return to their communities and work on their own lifestyle changes, involve their household in changes, and conduct at least two programs that involve their family, friends and community.
