Battling Childhood Obesity, Environmental Economics and History, “America I Am”, and More, July 2011

Impact showcases individuals and organizations making a difference both at home and outside our city limits. In this program we visit OASIS to find out about efforts to stop childhood obesity not just in St. Louis, but across the country. You’ll meet a UMSL professor teaming up with a Hollywood actress to make the future better for our youngest generations. The future is bright for those seeking the services of a local group called Community Hardship Against Women. This organization helps families turn their lives around, but they also ask for something in return. Plus, there’s a new team in town where the players win big no matter how the score ends up on the field. And we go inside the “America I Am” exhibit at the Missouri History Museum to see just how our lives are shaped by African American history.

Impact is living up to its name by highlighting people, companies, and organizations making the commitment to find innovative ways to improve the quality of life for others. These are the good news stories from our own community that will focus on those making a difference in someone's life, whether that's in their neighborhood, community or around the world. Tune in, it could have an impact on you!
