By May 1, my attitude toward everything related to school gets sadly apathetic. I have grown weary of dirty backpacks, papers, worksheets, homework folders, science projects, forms to sign, end-of-the-year parties, concerts to find black pants for and the never-ending donation requests.

Helping children understand why it’s important to establish healthy habits is important to Bryan Health. Our Kids’ Club was created to get children excited about exercise and nutrition and to provide opportunities for families to be active. It’s also a great way to meet other kids in the community!
