The flu season is off to an early and strong start. Flu activity has been reported as widespread in at least 46 states, including Indiana. Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health is currently restricting visitors to protect patients and prevent further spreading. Learn more.
When kids learn to make healthy choices about diet and exercise, they increase their chances for having a lifetime of wellness. Promoting healthy habits among Indiana’s youth is a top priority at Riley at IU Health, and we are joined in that effort by Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck.
Working together, Riley at IU Health and Andrew Luck have issued a challenge to kids, giving them three ways to participate in Change the Play:
At school. Change the Play offers activities to promote healthy exercise and nutrition. The program includes eight weeks of video and printable resources teachers can use in the classroom.
At home. Classrooms are not the only places where kids learn about health, so we promote wellness when school is not in session. When kids join the Change the Play Kids Club, they get a membership kit, monthly reminders from Andrew Luck and lots of tools to keep them motivated.
At statewide summer camps. Several Change the Play summer camps throughout the state offer kids age 5 to 13 a chance to interact with Andrew luck in a fast-paced, one-hour day camp, accompanied by an adult.
