Today's children are less active and eating unhealthy foods more than ever before. Those habits have led to an alarming increase in childhood heart disease, diabetes, obesity, cancer and metabolic X syndrome.
That’s why Goryeb Children’s Hospital offers Kid-FIT. This program uses intervention strategies, lectures and psychosocial support to teach overweight children and adolescents how to make healthier lifestyle choices. We are one of the only pediatric programs in the country that uses the state-of-the-art Body Media SenseWear WMS® technology to accurately assess every patient’s needs and establish individual goals.
