About the Author:

The book was developed by the Michael & Susan Dell Foundation and the Alliance for a Healthier Generation. The Dell family foundation advocates the need for childhood obesity prevention strategies to intervene at all levels of a child's environment, including at the individual level, within families, within schools, and in the community. The foundation's Health Portfolio reflects the passion of book s narrator, Susan Dell, the co-founder and chairman of the board and the driving force behind the foundation. An accomplished athlete, Susan was a member of the President's Council for Physical Fitness and Sports and is a board member of the Cooper Institute in Dallas. In the U.S., she is specifically focused on encouraging kids to be more physically active and on promoting healthy eating. Dell also has four children of her own. The Alliance for a Healthier Generation, a national nonprofit organization founded by the American Heart Association and William J. Clinton Foundation, was created in May of 2005 with the goal of reducing the nationwide prevalence of childhood obesity by 2015. The Alliance has been a grantee of the Michael & Susan Dell Foundation since 2007. The foundation funds two district wide implementations of the Alliance's Healthy Schools Program with goals to establish healthier school environments for students, teachers and staff.
