This video (launched at the Fall 2016 AMA Representative Forum by Dr. Kimberley Kelly, AMA CSH Representative) shows how the AMA Youth Run Club "checks all the boxes" of a Comprehensive School Health program, through its focus on physical activity, healthy eating and creating a positive social environment.
