Childhood Obesity

Childhood obesity is epidemic. In Georgia, nearly one million children are obese.  This is a healthcare crisis and we are partnering with our patients’ parents to reverse and prevent obesity.  It is a difficult journey, but we know that by working together we can make healthy changes. We are participants in Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta’s Strong4Life Program, a wellness movement to spark healthy changes and reverse the incidence of childhood obesity in Georgia.  Learn more at Strong4life.
