Obesity Program - child with egg

We are committed to the overall physical and emotional health of children and teens. We’re here to support you, your child/teen, your family and our community through:

  • Wellness Clinics for children and adolescents who are concerned about their weight
  • Community partnerships and programs
  • Advocacy for policies to make it easier to be physically active and eat healthfully in our community
  • Research studies
  • Hospital initiatives for patients, families and staff

What if I’m worried about my child’s weight?

It’s normal to have questions or concerns. Every child’s body and growth is different.

Your pediatrician or primary care provider is the best place to start if you are concerned about the way your child is growing.

If you want more information about ways to eat healthfully and be active, see our education and resources for families.
