The first partnership with a health care organization aims to engage patients and promote healthy eating in pediatric population
December 20, 2013, Brooklyn, NY… After much fanfare, NYU Lutheran and Super Sprowtz launched its groundbreaking partnership. The patient engagement initiative is aimed at educating Lutheran's pediatric population and their families about healthy eating and healthy living. Super Sprowtz has partnered with schools in the past and has been featured at the White House, but NYU Lutheran is the first health care organization to host the unique and interactive program.
The program kicked-off with a launch event on December 19 at the NYU Lutheran Sunset Park Family Health Center for Women and Children. The event, which was attended by Lutheran patients and approximately 30 students from PS 503/506, included a short speaking program by representatives from Lutheran and Super Sprowtz and was followed by an interactive performance by Roger Raddish, Brian Broccoli, Colby Carrot and more.
Generously funded by sponsors, Riva Precision Manufacturing, KA Design Group, and the NYU Lutheran Medical Center Auxiliary, this unique and highly interactive program engages children and families in waiting rooms using a fun, age appropriate curriculum that features an exciting multimedia approach including books and puppets that tell the story of vegetable superheroes that include Brian Broccoli, Colby Carrot, Erica Eggplant and more.
