James (Jim) Shaw is the co-founder and owner of JBREM, a patented althletic apparel company. Outside of his professional life, Jim Shaw is a supporter of the pediatric clinical care provider and nonprofit Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.
Along with providing advanced medical care to children and teens, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta sponsors a campaign called Strong4Life. The movement is designed to conquer childhood obesity through programs that encourage everyday wellness in children and their families.
Families who become involved with the Strong4Life program gain access to resources and treatments to help facilitate the lifestyle changes necessary for better health. At the week-long Camp Strong4Life, children afflicted by weight problems find support among peers with similar struggles while participating in outdoor activities like ziplining, swimming, and healthy cooking competitions.
Children who struggle with weight issues that require medical intervention can find the tools they need to get healthy at the Strong4Life Clinic. Professionals at the clinic assist families in designing nutrition plans, assessing a child’s medical conditions, and providing mental health support.
