Kristen Copeland, MD FAAP
Child Care and Physical Activity
Topic Info
Three-fourths of U.S. preschool-aged children are in child care, and much of their day is spent in sedentary activities. Dr. Kristen Copeland, MD, comes on the show to explore why children are not more physically active in child care centers, citing parental priorities about learning/school-readiness and injury prevention were the most common barriers to children's physical activity in child care, not the caregivers' ability to make time for it.
Guest Info
Dr. Kristen Copeland, MD, FAAP, is the Director of Primary Care Fellowship in Child and Adolescent Health at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center.
