Adopt a School Program

The Utah Medical Association (UMA) recently passed a resolution spearheaded by the Environmental/Public Health Committee (Dr. Rodier is chairman) entitled Adopt-a-School. This program is designed to allow doctors throughout the state of Utah to “adopt” schools and help students integrate lifestyle changes (nutrition and exercise) to mitigate the devastating effects of obesity.

The Board of Trustees of the UMA is in the process of consolidating the details of the Adopt-a-School Program.
