With rates of obesity on the rise, educating families on the importance of good nutrition and exercise is increasingly important. The VCU School of Nursing and the School’s Community Nursing Organization (CNO) are reaching out to the community to educate parents and kids about good health and to provide the tools to live healthier lives.

Students from Fay Parpart’s Community Nursing class worked with volunteer faculty and the Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club in Church Hill to host Family Fun Night. Nearly 100 parents and kids attended the hands-on session focusing on nutrition, healthy meal preparation, hand washing and exercise. The evening concluded with a warm, healthy meal for attendees and recipes that families could try at home.
