Dr. Robert C. and Veronica Atkins
Center for Weight and Health
Promoting healthy lifestyles for children and families
Founded in 1999, the Center works with schools and diverse community groups to develop and evaluate programs to support healthy eating and active living, with a focus on children and families in low-income communities and communities of color.
Your gift enables the Center to reach increasing numbers of individuals, families, schools, and community agencies with the most current evidence-based information and resources, and to meet the needs of a growing and diverse population that is struggling to address children’s nutritional needs and related health problems.
If you would like to speak to someone about the Center's work or making a financial contribution, please contact Gail Woodward-Lopez, 510.642.1599.
