Healthy Living: Bodies In Motion
Knox DD has partnered with the Knox County Health Department, Mount Vernon Nazarene University, Ohio State University Extension, Chef Ev and local providers to bring education and opportunities to people in our program to learn more about living healthy. Our journey started with educating direct care staff and individuals on portion sizes, healthy meal options and how to cook healthy meals in their own kitchens! The next phase to our Healthy Living journey is providing opportunities to exercise. Individuals from all day programs in Knox County have partnered with Mount Vernon Nazarene University Athletic Department to learn how to play basketball, soccer, use treadmills, exercise balls, stationary bikes among other exercises!
