Spread the Word: How Children’s Hospitals are Addressing Pediatric Obesity in the US

A number of resources are available to gain insight into how our southern neighbours have being working to address issues related to pediatric weight management in tertiary care settings. One of our colleagues (Dr. Steve Cook, University of Rochester Medical Center in New York) co-leads the Institute for Healthy Childhood Weight within the American Academy of Pediatrics. Their mandate, among many issues related to obesity, is to determine and disseminate ‘best practices’ for obesity management both within children’s hospitals and into the community. Several¬†reports and webinars¬†that highlight recent work are available online, which includes a lot of relevant information for our work in Canada.
