Taking steps towards a healthier future for individuals with disabilities and their families

The Ready Set Go for Health website is the primary focus of the READY (Resources for Exercise Activities & Diet for You) Project established through a joint Temple University/UCP Central PA initiative which aims to reduce the risk of obesity in children with disabilities. The initiative is funded through a grant by the National Institutes of Health (NIH# U13HD063168).

Overview

It is widely recognized that the earlier in life that children are introduced to exercise and nutritional guidelines, the more likely they will carry those habits into adulthood.

The project was set up by a volunteer group, with the help of several community members who learned about the READY project at a grant-sponsored Community Forum. The group met once a quarter to help develop a website to provide children with disabilities and their parents with resources they can use to lead healthier lives.
