A recent study done in Los Angeles County revealed that obesity
or overweight is a serious problem among children and adolescents.
To address this widespread health concern, CHI is engaged in a
three-fold effort to address obesity, including promoting physical
activity and healthy eating, educating families on how to prevent
obesity, and ensuring healthcare providers have appropriate knowledge
and resources to address childhood overweight/obesity.
