Starlight Starbright Children's Foundation is unveiling Get Fit, Get Right (, an online program designed to reduce obesity in teens and prevent type 2 diabetes and weight-related conditions such as blindness, amputation, renal failure, hypertension and heart disease.

Get Fit, Get Right participants learn to adopt healthier behaviors through: real-life video diaries of six teens as they work to improve their eating and exercise habits over 90 days; real world advice from nutrition, fitness and medical experts; and through a social network where teens share struggles and successes with one another.
