This week, we are going to hear a presentation from the USF Lecture Series at Allen County Public Library.

We’ll hear from Stacey Lehman and Jennifer Richard, Registered Nurses and Assistant Professors at the University of Saint Francis, on how childhood weight and obesity can impact health later in life, risk factors involved, and how families can respond.

Our music is by Mark Waldick, Noah Campodonico, Kurt Roembke, and Hope Arthur. Our web producer is Loyal Vandenburg. Our production assistants are Monica Blankenship, Steve Mullaney, Kyle Norbeck, Diahmynd Thomas, Mikaela Veltum, and Sydney Wagner.
