NJIT receives $20,000 grant from Horizon Foundation to promote teen health
Date:3/16/2009

To promote the health of at-risk teenagers in Newark and the surrounding area, NJIT has received a $20,000 grant from The Horizon Foundation for New Jersey.

This grant renews the Foundation's valuable support for a program to teach middle and high school students about nutrition, physical fitness and healthy lifestyles. At NJIT, the project will be carried out by the Consortium for Pre-College Education in Greater Newark, a partnership of NJIT, Rutgers University and the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey.

"Obesity and lack of physical fitness can result in serious, long-term health problems among teenagers in our community. We are deeply grateful for the partnership of The Horizon Foundation of New Jersey in our efforts to prevent these problems through an effective education program," said Charles R. Dees, Jr., PhD, vice president for advancement at NJIT.

"We are delighted to partner with NJIT," said Larry Altman, executive director of the Horizon Foundation for New Jersey. "The Horizon Foundation for New Jersey is dedicated to supporting charitable organizations making an impact in the lives of people across New Jersey."
