David Wachob and Robert Alman’s paper, “Homeschool Children; Parental Influence,  Cardiovascular Health, and Body composition” has been accepted as a chapter for publication in the book Child and Adolescent Health Issues, by J. Merrick (Ed.), Nova Science Publications.

The lack of public health knowledge available on the growing homeschool population has prompted the research presented in this work. The chapter describes the overall health status of homeschooling families, including both the parents and their children. Similar to previous work with public school children, this current study found that the parents had a significant influence on their children’s overall cardiovascular health and body composition.
