RedBranch/ Parents for Health | MD, Director | Ireland
I am a highly qualified exercise physiologist who has trained many world- renowned athletes currently living in Ireland I founded the Redbranch charity with the aim of changing young people’s behaviour by helping them to understand the implications of their lifestyle choices. RedBranch has executed several strategies to help schools create healthy lifestyle environments including connecting them with suppliers that can help with the transition to a health-promoting environment. In 60% of schools in the test region, soft drinks vending machines have been replaced with water vending machines. The main message promoted is that by helping our children to have good eating habits and to be physically active, we can help them to avoid serious illness in later life.
