The AAI staff has been conducting Choose To Live workshops at the Carsewell Federal Prison for women. In April they kicked off the biggest looser challenge with some of the inmates. Pattie Spencer a recreational specialist who invited us to the prison over three years ago decided to donate 50 cents to the American Diabetes Association for every pound the inmates lost.
