All Kids Healthy: CATCH in Central Iowa
Blank Children’s Hospital brought CATCH Kids Club to the Des Moines area in 2008 as the beginnings of a childhood obesity prevention program. Now in its seventh year, CATCH has expanded to 59 after school sites, six early childhood sites, and reaches over 4000 children. This webinar will review how CATCH was established in Central Iowa, expansion of the program, additional programming enhancing the CATCH curriculum, partnerships formed along the way, as well as lessons learned over the past six years.
