Dougherty Co. school board member wants healthier fundraisers

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A new School Board member wants students to have healthier fundraisers.

Dr. Lane Price says it sets a bad example for kids to sell candy and unhealthy sweets.

She says it's the responsibility of schools to try to keep students in good metal and physical shape.

"Let's look at something healthier, we've got to deal with obesity starting with children. I'm a physician and I see the ramifications of obesity from diabetes, to hypertension and kidney failure," said Dr. Price.

The board will study the feasibility of having healthier fundraisers.
