Childhood Obesity Resource Guide

This project was made possible through a grant from Covidien. The Obesity Society partnered with the National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC) to develop a resource that would provide the basis for a toolkit for Community Health Centers (CHCs) with information on childhood obesity treatment and prevention for providers, patients, families, and community stakeholders. This is the Beta version of the kit that will be used to evaluate its effectiveness in the community and in selected Community Health Centers.

Sections

The Obesity Society supports any group of members with similar interests, expertise or educational backgrounds that work together to develop goals which advance the Society's strategic plan. These groups are known as Sections and are self-defined, and share a common interest. Sections develop their own leadership and represent the interests of the group before the organization as a whole.

Members of The Obesity Society may join any Section and participate in the Section activities which are developed during the annual meeting and held throughout the year.
