As a way of helping BG Americas express its gratitude to the community, Herman, Manager of Corporate Responsibility, helped implement a local version of the UK-based weight management program called MEND (for Mind Exercise Nutrition Do It!). Taking Texas Children's Hospital as the main beneficiary, Herman and the group, in partnership with Baylor College of Medicine, implemented the program to help children and their families eat a healthy diet and be active for life.
