Tackling Childhood Obesity in Kansas City

Seventeen percent of children and adolescents in the U.S. aged 2 to 19 years are obese.

Did you know that in the United States, approximately 17% (or 12.5 million) of children and adolescents aged 2 to 19 years are obese? Hear how one community is helping to tackle this problem at its root — in the communities where these children live and play. This is the sort of ripple effect that can happen when nonprofit leaders partner and collaborate to create positive social change.

Listen to Lynn Fick-Cooper, CCL Senior Faculty, who shares this story of how positive social change can happen through leadership development.

Without help from donations for leadership development for nonprofit leaders and educators, they simply wouldn’t have access to it — and the kind of social change that we so need across this country wouldn’t be as possible.
