Be the Dot. Be the Difference

We at Auburn University are working together to stop sexual violence on our campus. The WE.auburn initiative is part of a nationwide program called the Green Dot Bystander Intervention Program. The Green Dot focuses on the actions of the bystander, the third party in any circumstance. By mobilizing the bystander to take action and intervene in a potentially dangerous or harmful situation, it is possible to change and even prevent the outcome of a violent situation. We call these instances “green dots.” WE are changing the culture at Auburn University, one green dot at a time.

FAM-TASTICALLY FIT

This is a great opportunity to help your family become more physically active and live a healthier lifestyle!

This research study is promoting family physical activity and fitness. To be eligible for the study, families must have at least one parent that is willing to participate and at least one child with a BMI over the 85th percentile. If you are unsure of your child's BMI status, we can check that for you. Also if you have multiple children, please feel free to bring them as well. We have a great kids area, with a lot of activities for them. We are asking interested families to come in on Thursday evenings for 60-90 minutes to complete an exercise session and a short health education session. We will also be creating an "action plan" with families to help them be more active throughout their week. All participants will be given an activity tracker throughout the duration of the 12 week study.

If I can answer any questions, please let me know.
