Sign OAC’s Childhood Obesity Petition if You Believe Children with Obesity Deserve the Same Access to Healthcare as Adults
Obesity is a disease at any age, and obesity rates in children often increase with age.
Childhood obesity places kids at risk for disease that were once only seen in adults, such as type 2 diabetes. These health issues, if left untreated, worsen with age. In order to address this, comprehensive care for children with obesity is needed to help families. Families need valuable resources to help them address the issue with their children and provide the necessary care.
What You Can Do:
