The Pediatric Healthy Lifestyle Center is a unique program dedicated to working with overweight/obese children and children at risk for developing diabetes.
Patients with a strong family history of diabetes and other risk factors are evaluated for diabetes risk. Patients are also checked for health conditions that are caused by being overweight/obese. Family participation is encouraged, and patient/family education varies based on the child’s age. The key points are to:
- Prepare the child and family for lifestyle changes;
- Continue on with behavior changes; and
- Keep up healthy habits for life.
Before an individual appointment is scheduled, the family must attend a group orientation session, depending on the child’s age. The program is open to referrals for children 2-18 years old.
A doctor’s referral is needed to enroll in this program.
