About Healthy Happy Kids

Childhood obesity is a growing epidemic in the U.S. and it’s even more severe in Alabama. One-third of Alabama children are either overweight or obese, placing them on the top of obesity charts nationally. Among racial and ethnic minority populations such as African Americans and Hispanics, obesity rates are even higher.

The MHRC designed the Healthy Happy Kids (HHK) program to teach children how good nutrition and an active lifestyle will help them lead healthier lives. For six weeks, children in Birmingham City School System after-school programs learn about healthy eating and staying active.

About the Minority Health & Health Disparities Research Center

Established in 2002, the MHRC generated and disseminates research knowledge from biomedical, behavioral, and social sciences in order to reduce the health disparities experienced by vulnerable populations and disadvantaged communities locally, regionally, and nationally. By aligning research, training, and community outreach, the MHRC advances scientific knowledge about the root causes of health inequalities and delivers real-world solutions to vulnerable communities. The MHRC is a University-wide Interdisciplinary Research Center and a designated Center of Excellence in Health Disparities Research by the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
