Raynor Combats Obesity with Prevention Plus Program

Hollie Raynor
The Prevention Plus Program (PP), implemented by Hollie Raynor, interim assistant dean and professor of nutrition, is recommended for childhood obesity within a primary care setting. With obesity levels in children age 4 to 10 years at approximately 42%, Raynor knew it was time to make a change for these children to prevent higher risks of health issues as they mature.

Read more about the PP program and the goals being explored in relationship to the household food security status with and without caretakers.  In agreement with Cherokee Health System’s primary care providers, Raynor hopes that implementing the PP program will make a difference in improving weight status in young children.
