Tony award winning actor Ben Vereen has a long list of acting credits attached to his name -- from Broadway theater, films and television. Now, Vereen is hoping to take his experience and use "the performing arts as a foundation for a healthier lifestyle, focusing on key topics of obesity, diabetes, low self-esteem, and bullying."
He’s in the Sacramento area this week launching his Wellness Through the Arts program. He will be meeting with faculty and administration of Natomas Charter School for Performing and Fine Arts Academy Tuesday to discuss the program. He joins us ahead of that meeting to preview what the program will look like when it’s put into practice.
