Author Opal Dockery will sign copies of her new reference book A CONSIDERATION THAT CHILDHOOD OBESITY COULD BE CLASSIFIED AS LEGALIZED CHILD ABUSE , Saturday, December 28th from 4 to 6:30 pm at Pura Vida Bakery, 1236 Western Avenue.
The event is free and open to all.
Synopsis: Ms. Dockery's reference book is the first of its kind to show a possible direct link between Childhood Obesity and Child Abuse. Childhood obesity is a preventable medical disorder that fulfills the legal definition of Child Abuse. Through extensive research, and finding that it captures the lives of children and is transferred to adulthood, remaining a constant lifelong problem, this book shows and educates the reader that Childhood Obesity could and should be considered a legalized form of Child Abuse.
