Children today are so often overly-scheduled that they have very little free time to notice and appreciate the natural world around them. Rick Van Noy (Radford University) talks about “nature-deprived children” and offers some practical suggestions to get kids outside and interacting with their environment.

 Also: Sheila Ward (Norfolk State University) discusses how African-American women view their body image and how that image compares to how the women of Africa view themselves. Ward, a dancer and a professor of Health and Exercise Science, is intensely interested in the role of exercise in improving the health of young African American women.
