Childhood Health and Wellness Initiative

Memorial Hospital is on a mission to help make our community among the healthiest in America! To do so, we believe teaching children at the earliest ages the importance of healthy eating and exercise is the best way to start!

We are pleased to be offering our community the Let’s Go program. In 2016, we reached 16 northern Carroll County after school programs, childcare and health care practices for building environments in which unhealthy food choices are limited and opportunities for physical activity are plentiful.

Schools reach children during an important period of development, in an environment that can positively influence healthy behaviors. Children spend the majority of their day at school and eat one or more meals, plus snacks during that time. Combine this with educational goals focused on positive physical, social, emotional, and academic development and schools are an ideal location to support increased physical activity and healthy eating. Schools have the opportunity to provide healthier foods in the classroom and cafeteria, and to creatively increase physical activity throughout the entire school day, supporting healthier children now. They also provide a safe environment for children to learn and practice the skills needed to support healthy behaviors for a lifetime!

Memorial Hospital Open Golf Tournament helps raise the funds necessary to provide this program to our community. Please see our golf event webpage for more information.
