Hot Topics in Health Care for Youth Webinar Series: Screening for Obesity Among Youth: What healthcare providers can do
Central East ATTC

Event Type: Educational Event
What: Childhood obesity is a serious problem in the United States putting kids at risk for poor health. Approximately 17% (12.7 million) of children and adolescents aged 2-19 years in the United States are obese. Despite recent declines in the prevalence among preschool-aged children, obesity amongst all children is still too high (CDC, 2017). Health and human service providers can have unique opportunities to play a significant role in the prevention of obesity through their work with children, youth and families. The USPSTF recommendation Screening Children and Adolescents for Obesity (U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, 2017) will be reviewed. PARTICIPANTS: This webinar is designed for health care providers who work in multiple types of settings including primary care, maternal and child health care, STD/HIV & reproductive health care, mental health, health departments, hospitals, health centers, schools, and community health settings.
When: 9/22/2017;  12:30 PM To 1:30 PM
Where: This is a distance event.
