Petition update

UNC Drops Krispy Kreme from Clinic Name!

Margo G. Wootan, D.Sc. at CSPI

May 10, 2016 — Thanks to you and 14,000 other people who signed the petition, the University of North Carolina has dropped the doughnut brand moniker from the former Krispy Kreme Challenge Children’s Specialty Clinic. Now kids can go to the NC State Park Scholars Children’s Specialty Clinic instead.

Given kids’ near-constant exposure to junk food advertising, it can be hard for parents to feed kids well. We’re glad UNC got the message that the last thing we need is doctors and healthcare providers undermining their own medical advice by plastering a doughnut brand on their medical offices.

Thank you for standing up for kids’ health. UNC’s announcement demonstrates that concerned citizens have the power to change the world for the better.
