Organization aims to change families by supporting moms

Published 5:13pm Wednesday, June 26, 2013

The Changing Lives moms group launched its effort through a spring series of “CREATION” programs for about 21 participating mothers.

The faith-based program focused on topics such as choice, rest and your environment, activity and trust, relationships and outlook and basic nutrition.

This second round of evening nutrition seminars will take place from 6-7:30 p.m. at The Morgan Center, located at 2820 Lynn Road, Tryon.

Buell is from the NC State Extension office located in Columbus and is on the PF3 board. PF3 is the collaborative designed to address the community health needs assessment. Recent findings of that group identified that 64 percent of adults were considered borderline or clearly obese, while 24 percent of children were at risk or were obese in Polk County.
