We are committed to helping families in our community and addressing the childhood obesity epidemic.
Our experts see the value and importance of prevention for children of all ages. Whether in the clinic or in the community, we strive to provide the latest information on nutrition, fitness, mental health and the most current trends.
In addition to our family programs, we also offer school-based programming and tools for other health care providers to identify and support weight management in their own office. Many of these resources are made possible through support from Kohl's Cares.
