Jia Perkins visits TUC Champs - Respite Care

Jia Perkins visited one of the Summer Team Up Challenge Champions at Respite Care to lead them in nutritional education activities in partnership with the Dribble to Stop Diabetes campaign, Sanofi US and the American Diabetes Association.

Respite Care’s “Respite Kids get fit” learned throughout the summer about how to make healthy food choices and stay fit. Perkins joined the group to help them make healthy salads and learn about the importance of eating fruits and vegetables.

The Dribble to Stop Diabetes campaign generates awareness about the disease and promotes the importance of healthy, active lifestyles as well as diabetes awareness and prevention. Early education is key to ensuring that more people within our community are aware of how to prevent diabetes.
