About the Book

#1 Thought Provoking Health Handbook of the Decade

“I wish I had this book, Health Intelligence, when I was raising my five children. I found the book easy to read, easy to understand and easy to follow through. Had this book been available back then, Dr. Benji would surely have given Dr. Spock a run for his money.

I would recommend this book to every parent in the universe.”

—Fern Michaels, New York Times bestselling author

“No child on this Earth is here by accident. Every child has a soul, and every soul has a purpose. If the child’s emotional, educational, spiritual, physical and financial needs are met, they will be able to achieve at their highest potential.”

—Dr. Verna R. Benjamin-Lambert

In Health Intelligence, Dr. Verna Benjamin-Lambert takes on this modern-day health catastrophe, reveals the primary causes of childhood obesity, and sets the stage for a health revolution that makes resetting health norms for our children paramount. Dr. Benjamin-Lambert uses the term “health intelligence” to describe the new concept that is the key to eradicating childhood obesity through education and enrichment for the parents, educators, social workers, and clinicians who are the front line of defense for the health of our nation’s children. Through the simple principles outlined in her book, young people and their families will get the tools they need to improve their health and live longer, happier lives.

About the Author

Dr. Verna R. Benjamin-Lambert has dedicated her life to serving children. Her tireless passion to help the youth is fueled by her strong belief that given a chance, every child can experience success. Her studies at West Georgia University in Special Education Leadership gave her the tools to become an advocate for students with disabilities. Following her undergraduate studies, she went on to obtain her doctorate from Nova Southeastern University. As an administrator at one of the leading school systems in Georgia, she became a voice for children who were being left behind in the academic setting. She retired from the school system to fulfill a lifetime goal of establishing The Benjamin Preschool of Academic and Performing Arts in Smyrna, Georgia. Her passion to support children facing challenges led her to author the book, Health Intelligence, a work that grapples with the core issues leading to the obesity crisis among children. Her interest in children’s health led to her development of the Healthy Benji series of children’s books focused on establishing healthy eating habits in children. Dr. Benjamin-Lambert, a native of Jamaica, West Indies resides with her family in Kennesaw, Georgia.
