Bright Bodies - Family Based Healthy Lifestyle Program

Bright Bodies is a 12-week, evidenced-based, healthy lifestyle program for families that offers nutrition education, behavioral modification, and physical activity. This Department of Pediatrics & Children's of Alabama resource is for families of children ages 7 to 13 who have a BMI ≥85th percentile and who would be willing to attend sessions twice a week (one in person and one virtually). At this time there is no cost to the program. There will be an opportunity to participate in research, but it is not required to participate in the program. 

Please contact Caroline Keller at or 205-490-8087 to see if your family is eligible to enroll. Medical providers can refer interested families via email at any time of year.
