To newly qualify for the Georgia Special Needs Scholarship Program for the upcoming school year a student must meet ALL the following requirements: At the end of the school year, school systems update student records for students served by an IEP after the March count to reflect that they are special education students.By mid-July the database for the scholarship calculator is updated to include these students.
An excess of visceral fat is known as central obesity, or "belly fat", in which the abdomen protrudes excessively.
New developments such as the Body Volume Index (BVI) are specifically designed to measure abdominal volume and abdominal fat.
A panniculus complicates surgery of the morbidly obese individual.
It may remain as a literal "apron of skin" if a severely obese person quickly loses large amounts of fat (a common result of gastric bypass surgery).
Both the mesenteric and omental depots incorporate much lymphoid tissue as lymph nodes and milky spots, respectively.
The two superficial depots are the paired inguinal depots, which are found anterior to the upper segment of the hind limbs (underneath the skin) and the subscapular depots, paired medial mixtures of brown adipose tissue adjacent to regions of white adipose tissue, which are found under the skin between the dorsal crests of the scapulae.
Adipose tissue is found in specific locations, which are referred to as adipose depots.
Apart from adipocytes, which comprise the highest percentage of cells within adipose tissue, other cell types are present, collectively termed stromal vascular fraction (SVF) of cells.
SVF includes preadipocytes, fibroblasts, adipose tissue macrophages, and endothelial cells. In the integumentary system, which includes the skin, it accumulates in the deepest level, the subcutaneous layer, providing insulation from heat and cold. However, its main function is to be a reserve of lipids, which can be oxidised to meet the energy needs of the body and to protect it from excess glucose by storing triglycerides produced by the liver from sugars, although some evidence suggests that most lipid synthesis from carbohydrates occurs in the adipose tissue itself.
The obese mouse on the left has large stores of adipose tissue.
The Georgia Special Needs Scholarship (GSNS) Program is a school choice program available for special needs students attending Georgia public schools who are served under an Individualized Education Plan (IEP).
