On Thursday, March 4th at 7pm, the Toadstool Bookshops in Keene, Peterborough, and Nashua will host author Dr. Daniel O’Neill presenting and discussing his new book Survival of the Fit in a free online event via Zoom.
Dr. Daniel O’Neill knows that children are born as active, curious, imaginative beings with a built-in physical identity. Survival of the Fit offers a new and revelatory plan to nurture this identity and save the health of America’s youngsters. One of the keys to this plan is rebranding physical education (PE) and making it available for every child, every day, in every year of school. In addition to establishing historical references and a scientific basis for this rebranding, Dr. O’Neill provides a downloadable template for PE classes at all school levels. He lays out a blueprint to help educators and parents bring this “PE revolution” to their school with no increase in the school budget. Sounding the alarm regarding America’s health crisis, Survival of the Fit explains how we can use existing tools, knowledge, and infrastructure to make needed changes with immediate results for every student, not just a privileged few. Everyone interested in seeing improvements in the physical, mental, and emotional health of our children will want to put this book to use.
Dr. Daniel Fulham O’Neill is a board-certified Orthopaedic Surgeon, Sports Medicine Doctor, Sport Psychologist, and Author on a mission to get children healthier and happier through maintaining what he calls their “physical identity.” He practices at The Alpine Clinic, a division of Littleton Regional Healthcare in NH. His latest book, “Survival of the Fit: How Physical Education Ensures Academic Achievement and a Healthy Life" has just been published by Teachers College Press at Columbia University.
