Three years ago, the Fort Bend Family YMCA started a partnership with Aetna in the development and implementation of the Coordinated Approach To Child Health program, also known as CATCH. The program is a coordinated effort to promote physical activity, positive food choices and healthy lifestyles education. Since its inception, the program has educated hundreds of area youth to live healthier lives. Annually, the program has reduced the number of overweight/obese youth in the targeted group by 15-20%. More importantly, it is teaching and empowering 100% of the youth on healthy lifestyle changes that they can use the rest of their lives.
