After School Program

 

Project MacD (Mobile AllStars Combating Diabetes) is collaborating with Tennis AllStars and The University of Akron.  In our quest to introduce ethnic minority youth to tennis while promoting a healthy lifestyle through education. Partially funded through June 2009 by the Ohio Commission on Minority Health, MacD was especially designed for children residing in low-income communities where Type 2 Diabetes (e.g., obesity, constant physical inactivity, and high fat/low fiber diets) tend to be more pronounced. Since September 2006, MacD has introduced tennis, taught healthy lifestyles, educated and provided multicultural counseling to over 500 minority youth and services to over 2,500 youth at 17 different sites in Akron, Ohio.
