Childhood Obesity Awareness Infographic

Sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month is a time to promote healthy growth in children. The experts at Cardiometabolic Health Congress (CMHC) join the CDC and other public health organizations to recognize that the fight against childhood obesity – and the lifelong cardiometabolic diseases that result – is more complicated than telling patients to “eat less and move more.” There are complex factors at play, and speaking to patients’ families and caregivers can have a great impact when handled with sensitivity and understanding. Download the complimentary CMHC infographic, “Five tips for talking to caregivers about childhood obesity,” for some applicable ways to approach this important conversation about healthy weight.
