NCAA Chief Medical Officer promotes sports during CCMH talk

LAWTON, Okla._Obesity is a growing problem in our country, and while we hear about illiteracy in reading and math...physical illiteracy is becoming the latest problem and a national organization hopes to change that.

Dr. Brian Hainline, the Chief Medical Officer of the National Collegiate Athletic Association, oversees the NCAA Sport Science Institute and paid a visit to Comanche County Memorial Hospital to speak on the importance of promoting sports not just on the college level, but building bridges between grade school, high school and college. He says it's something the community can also support.

"We know that kids who are active do better academically. How does that fit in with the NCAA? Any community level activity that is promoting health, sports and things that help us to be healthy...we are all for that," Dr. Hainline said.

The NCAA also promotes and works in conjunction with programs like Fit Kids of Southwest Oklahoma, which works to reintroduce fitness and healthy eating habits back into the lives of students and families.
