Prevention first starts at home with the family. Under one of our mottos, Lead By Example, all of our initiatives, activities and programs in Spain and the United States involve fathers, mothers, and siblings to empower a change towards a healthy life. Prevention also requires coordinated efforts from governments, industry, health professionals, ICTs (information and communication technologies), television, internet, non-governmental organizations, schools, workplaces, and the community. Each and every one of these agents mentioned plays an important role in prevention. No single intervention alone can stop the growing epidemic of childhood obesity. We, at Gasol Foundation, strongly feel that the complexity of this problem requires an integral and participatory approach, where all agents of society have a direct impact on positively influencing and educating today’s youth.
This is why Gasol Foundation works in coordination with various agents and entities from different territories so that effective and impactful interventions can be planned out and implemented -without forgetting the key role family plays in the adoption of habits by children.
