The Get FIT (Families in Training) program is a preventive program aimed at averting type II diabetes, obesity and sedentary lifestyles. Health and wellness are important for all children; Get FIT provides consistent and practical information for healthy living. Get FIT upholds parents as role models and leaders in their children's lives and in their community. For that reason, it is imperative that not only children but also parents be active participants in our program. Get FIT's goal is to transform the lives of the people in medically underserved, rural communities. Our efforts focus on actively engaging community members and stakeholders in the planning, designing, and delivery of services and programs that address the unmet needs of their community.
