Meet the IEHP Superheroes
An integral part of IEHP's mission, Community Outreach aims to serve the community through a variety of health and safety programs. We introduced one of our first programs to target children ages of 5 to 14 in 1998. The program uses a fun and cool superhero, Rad Rider, in a comic book to teach kids about bicycle safety. Since the introduction of Rad Rider, our IEHP superhero team has grown to include Eradicator in 2001 and Super Nutricia in 2009. Several years have passed and it is time to introduce a new superhero to encourage healthy habits in the digital age.
The IEHP superheroes - Super Nutricia, Eradicator, and Rad Rider encourage kids to stay safe and be healthy. Have your children read about each superhero. You can also take your kids to meet each superhero in person at our next big community event.
