The D.O.L.L.S. Project
Obesity is a disease plaguing many Americans throughout the country and the City of St. Louis at alarming rates. Statistic from a recent Mayo Clinic study show that about 1 in 3 adults are considered obese and numbers are on the rise. Obesity is not only an issue of having excessive body fat and weight; it is also linked to extreme health conditions such as cancer, Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, and respiratory problems.
The D.O.L.L.S. (Decreasing Obesity to Live Healthier Life Styles) Project is our community outreach initiative to work with collaborative partners to remove the barriers that prevent women from exercising and help improve overall health through empowerment. The following initiatives are already underway;
• Workplace Wellness
• Girls Step Up!
