How Is Childhood Obesity Being Managed Today?
Childhood obesity is no longer confined to developed nations. This serious pediatric health issue is now a global epidemic. Battling childhood obesity isn’t as simple as encourage kids to choose healthier snacks and swap video games for outside play. This video explores how a multidisciplinary approach can help make real change possible.
Obesity isn’t just caused by poor food choices and sedentary lifestyles. Many economic, cultural, and physiological factors are also at play. A systems science approach that integrates research into all of these influences and makes partners of hospitals, policy makers, and empowered patients, may be the best chance of overcoming childhood obesity.
