Video: Ochsner Medical Center 'Drives' Mobile P.E. Class to New Orleans Schools in Fight Against Child Obesity
Date:8/12/2008

sity, particularly in Louisiana, where we have some of the highest adult and pediatric obesity rates and we're one of the least healthy states in the country." Moodie adds that "many schools have just 15 minutes two days a week for P.E. class, and a lot of schools don't have recess so children are sitting in classrooms for several hours without moving."

Physical education programs vary from school to school and "On the Move offers supervised physical activities much like what kids would do in a school gymnasium, and in other cases, the program serves as a supplement to P.E. classes and extracurricular activities," says Heim. "Currently, we have 10 strength training machines and hope to add child-sized spinning bikes," says Heim. The bus also includes two flat-screen televisions and air conditioning.

On the Move includes strength and cardiovascular "circuit" workouts, nutrition lectures, and heart-healthy cooking classes and demonstrations by Elmwood's Executive Chef, and is designed to teach parents and kids how to incorporate healthier foods and behaviors into their lifestyle. On the Move's pilot program was launched in Spring 2008 with 4th and 5th graders at S.J. Green Charter School in Uptown New Orleans.

With parental permission, On the Move staff will collect data this Fall on the children's blood pressure readings, resting heart rate, body fat percentages, strength, flexibility and muscle mass, both before and after going through the program. Funding for On the Move is provided in part by the Frost Foundation, Coca-Cola and the New Orleans Saints.
