“The Obesity Society supports the American Heart Association in its efforts to combat childhood obesity. In a statement released today, AHA has outlined a variety of effective ways to help close the gap between diet and exercise and other types of interventions that may benefit children with severe obesity, including medication and surgery. TOS has a longstanding commitment to help improve the lives of children affected, and we advocate for these measures, as well as continued work on environmental and policy change to help support individual treatment efforts for children.”
