David Wachob and Robert Alman, Department of Health and Physical Education, published an article titled “Parental Influence on the Cardiovascular Health and Body Composition of Homeschool Children” in the International Journal of Child and Adolescent Health.

The article presented findings from their recent study examining the health status of homeschooling families. Both the parents and the children were tested to determine cardiovascular health (VO2 Max) and body composition (BMI and body fat %). This study found that the parents were a significant variable when determining influential factors on homeschooling children’s cardiovascular health and body composition. 

The International Journal of Child and Adolescent Health is a peer-reviewed journal that provides an international forum with a holistic approach to child health, adolescent health, and human development.
