about US

Welcome!

Our current project

Vidas Activas y Familias Saludables (VALÉ), is a study that benefits children and families from the lowest income brackets in the Woodbridge area.  We offer nutrition, exercise and psychological support to reduce weight and increase health across the entire family – all delivered in Spanish.  This program is FREE to families and prior participants continue to consult with us to ensure it is culturally consistent.
