I started volunteering at IEMPHIT in November 2009 when I was unemployed. The staff engaged me right away in their mission to improve the health of children and adults.
This is a one-of-a-kind clinic that uses exercise and nutrition to empower people's control of their weight in a clinical setting.
I have seen first hand children with chronic conditions improve their physical strength and become an active participant in their food choices within their families.
Children with ADD, Autism, Downs Syndrome and ADHD participating in an exercise program become more focused and enjoy the encouragement, support and fun the physiologists provide.
I have a strong appreciation for the dedication these professionals give to their clients while trying to grow a new kind of medical clinic.
Thankfully, I am very lucky to now be a part-time employee of this program.
