The Sunflower Cardiopulmonary Research Project of Children.
Greene, Leon
A three year project designed to determine the value of a health program incorporating a cardiopulmonary fitness program is described. The instructional programs were in heart health, pulmonary health, nutrition, and physical fitness. A noncompetitive exercise and fitness period was employed in addition to the normal physical education time. Parents and teachers also participated in the program. Fitness assessments were given at the beginning of each school year and again at the end. Results indicate that this program improved the health of the participating children by lowering cholesterol levels, blood pressure, and resting heart rate while increasing physical endurance. (JD)
