DHK Wellness Strategies was created to address the needs of youth, children and adults in inner cities and with specific focus on the African American and Hispanic communities. We consult with licensed healthcare professionals to devise plans and workshops to address health related issues in underserved communities.
The Healthy Youth Project was developed over several years after numerous researches uncovered the correlations between academic performance, emotional and physical health and diet.
The Healthy Youth Project seeks to enlighten and empower student participants to choose a healthier lifestyle by introducing various workshops to address natural ways of avoiding chronic diseases through diet. Additionally, part of the Healthy Youth Project includes healthy cooking demonstrations and development of an urban school garden. Students volunteer to help cultivate the garden along with the organic farming consultant. Students will use the produce to prepare meals for the community to purchase and to help raise money for the school.
A strategic plan is being developed to include training interns to expand the program to reach more students in the current Dallas School System and beyond.
