Boeing Center for Children's Wellness
The MUSC's Boeing Center for Children's Wellness (formerly known as Lean Team) is a school and community based childhood obesity prevention initiative focused on improving the health of all students, staff and their families. Created in July 2007 as a partnership between the MUSC- Division of Adolescent Medicine, and the Charleston County School District (CCSD) we now serve over 100 schools in the tri-county area (Berkeley, Charleston and Dorchester). We support and incentivize schools to make lasting nutrition and physical activity improvements, impacting the health of over 60,000 students and staff. Our wellness initiative has been implemented in 85% of Charleston County Schools, and participating schools have made an average of 33 wellness policy and environmental changes. We are our now offering this program to all public schools in the tri-county region, and are being asked to expand our initiative to new communities across the state. The cornerstone of our program is an annual wellness checklist contest that includes a small monetary award ($1000) granting school wellness committees for the first time, a budget to implement wellness activities of their choosing. In addition, we have engaged physicians in this wellness initiative by pairing them with schools in our highly successful Docs Adopt program led by local pediatrician and Lean Team director, Dr. Janice Key. We are a collaborative program with multiple partners and are excited to share our successes in changing unhealthy policies, environments and behaviors in our schools, physician practices, and our community. SC ranks among the top 10 fattest states in the nation. Our organization is committed to changing this staggering fact. Your donation will be used to directly fund the school wellness awards and impact the prevalence of obesity in our schools and community. Thank you for your kindness and generous support.
