Roane County has a very high obesity rate for school children. We also have a high rate of medicated kids. Frankly, I've never bought into the HDD diagnosis for figity kids. I was one. OK, I still am one. I would love to see Roane County get a pioneer program going in elementary schools using stand up desks. They also can come with stools which seems best. I may look into this for my home office.
