A Family-focused Practice

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control says that 70 percent of obese children and young adults had at least one risk factor for cardiovascular disease, while 39 percent of obese children had two or more. Risk factors include high blood pressure, high cholesterol levels and abnormal glucose tolerance.

The Healthy Center provides family-focused programs that promote lifestyle changes for children and parents today and into the future. Through educating children and their families about nutrition and exercise we will have the opportunity to prevent and manage heart disease which is associated with being overweight.
