Grassroot Soccer’s Generation Skillz program, which is targeted at youth 15-19 years old, was recently featured on BBC Radio’s Health Check in an installment about why adolescence is such an important time in terms of adult health outcomes. Grassroot Soccer’s Sikhumbuzo Mnulcwane and GRS Soweto Coaches were featured in the program. The broadcast also featured an interview with renowned epidemiologist and international health expert Prof. David Ross of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.
