Mission Statement

Education ~ Awareness ~ Solutions The AOA is a newly branded education and results based membership organization. Our goal through education & promotion is to identify the causes, prevention, treatment and action plans in solving the obesity pandemic. Our keys to success will be to profoundly reconsider past recommendations and initiatives with new national programs and to act boldly with new solutions.

Description

We started a non-profit in 1995 known as the Massachusetts Science Center. For 25 years we were one of the leading organizations in America for science research and education. We worked with millions of school aged children developing a wide range of hands-on science, math, cooking, fitness, & wellness curriculum programs. We worked at over 800 pre-schools to middle schools. We created some of the bestselling science education products in the country.

But, we began to notice some alarming trends about children’s health and in 2018 we embarked in a no cost wellness program for children - and the results were incredible. This local notable pilot program from the 2018-2019 academic year in the Boston area included a 92% increase in desired fitness and health outcomes; a 64% reduction in electronic device usage; and a 78% decrease in obesity. We realized that the program could easily be adapted and modeled with this same dramatic success all across America.
