It's a Girl Thing is a cardiovascular education workshop geared toward junior and cadet girl scouts 9-14 years old. The workshop promotes heart health lessons/topics to the girls and their chaperones through individual workshops. With the increasing awareness of obesity and diabetes in the world today, 86 need to be taught this information starting at a young age. To accomplish this we plan on providing workshops that focus on eating healthy, exercising, and self esteem. The parents/chaperones also will learn helpful information on how to help their 86 make healthy choices and lead a healthy lifestyle as well as themselves.
