KEEN USA Symposium

KEEN USA hosted a National Symposium in Washington, DC on the need for fitness programs for kids with disabilities in light of the childhood obesity epidemic. Representatives from NCHPAD, The YMCA, Special Olympics, SHAPE America, Playworks, and other organizations came together to discuss access and barriers to programming, best practices for providing programs, outcomes measurement and other issues on this critical topic.

 

KEEN Founder Elliott Portnoy welcomed guests and spoke of his early vision for creating fitness opportunities for kids with disabilities, never dreaming there would be an epidemic of childhood obesity severely impacting this population. For more information, click here.
