September is childhood obesity awareness month

In the past four decades, obesity rates in the United States have soared among all age groups. This rise in obesity rates has affected youth in alarming fashion. There are opportunities every day to change these trends.  In the month of September, there is an extraordinary opportunity to build awareness and take action. September marks the start of National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month, a time for us to encourage America’s children to develop healthy habits that can last a lifetime.

Check out the National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month webpage for ideas, resources and background information.

About Us

The Exergames Unlocked project includes a multi-state team of accomplished media education researchers, exercise physiologists, medical professionals and doctoral students. Contributing members are researchers in their fields and have helped launch the use of exergames as tools to combat obesity in their communities and beyond. New Mexico State University researchers and their partners have been funded to research the impact of exergames, develop specific recommendations for exergame use, and implement exergaming programs. As part of that project, this website provides access to resources based on research, sample projects, and input from the exergaming community.
