Healthy Attitudes Produce Positive Youth
Education, community connection, & support to help youth & their families live their healthiest lives

Project HAPPY (Healthy Attitudes Produce Positive Youth) was started by Dr. Tami Hendriksz, a pediatrician who is passionate about promoting pediatric health and combating the obesity epidemic through education, clinical service, and community-programs. Students from Touro University California College of Osteopathic Medicine help to teach the classes, lead the activities, and serve as personal health navigators for the families who participate.

​Project HAPPY is a community-based family-centered program that teaches families about healthy living through interactive classes, cooking demonstrations, physical activity sessions, and personal health-navigators.
