The most comprehensive, clinically relevant guide to the treatment and prevention of childhood obesity
Clinical Care of the Child with Obesity gives physicians the tools to respond effectively to a persistent health crisis affecting 1 in 3 children in the United States. The book helps physicians in pediatrics, family practice, and other specialties understand the pathophysiology and etiologies of childhood obesity; identify and manage pediatric patients with this condition; and develop learning skills for use in their future practices and communities.
