POWERful Stuff

For the past 5 years, our Edmonton-based Pediatric Centre for Weight and Health has been one of several Canadian sites participating in the CANadian Pediatric Weight management Registry (CANPWR) study. However, our CANPWR is not the only POWER-house around.

In a recent paper published in Childhood Obesity, researchers described baseline data derived from a US-based, national study called the Pediatric Obesity Weight Evaluation Registry (POWER). There are a lot of similarities (and a few differences) between our networks, although both provide compelling data regarding the need for effective and accessible health services to help children, youth and families working to enhance their health and manage obesity.
