Donze Black directs the healthy schools program at Alliance for a Healthier Generation, an initiative aimed at reversing the epidemic of childhood obesity by advancing healthier choices and increased levels of physical exercise for young people. She and her staff work with more than 7,500 schools in all 50 states to foster healthy lifestyle habits.
