Let’s Go! National Obesity Conference
September 26 & 27 | 110 Free Street, Portland
Join Let's Go! to explore the "First 1,000 Days," the critical period from preconception to age 2. Learn about the impact of maternal factors on childhood obesity and the role of early childhood factors in promoting healthy weight.
Let’s Go! provides a variety of training opportunities for practice teams. We’ll train your entire team on how Let’s Go! 5-2-1-0 can help fight childhood obesity by focusing on healthy habits. Please contact us to discuss in-person training.
We also offer webinars to help providers hone their motivational interviewing skills or learn about the management and treatment of childhood obesity, including how co-morbid conditions impact obesity.
Next Steps Modules
Next Steps is a guide for clinicians to help children and adolescents reduce and manage weight. This guide outlines a series of planned follow-up visits designed to teach evidence-based weight management strategies that can lead to success for the practitioner and patient. The Next Steps guide is available for purchase on the American Academy of Pediatrics online store.
These trainings are designed to provide healthcare providers and practices with valuable information that will help to transform the way they deliver care. We hope you take away useful information to help the children and families you work with develop healthy habits for life.
