Description

Childhood obesity is a growing problem across the US, particularly in rural areas. Rural children are disproportionately affected by obesity due at least in part to limited resources. Ann Davis, MPH, PhD, ABPP, and her team of co-investigators are trying to change that through a remotely delivered, family-based obesity intervention. iAmHealthy is composed of a 25-hour behavioral intervention focused on nutrition, physical activity and behavioral change. Families receive eight weekly group sessions followed by monthly group sessions, in addition to individual family-based health behavior coaching.

Listen as Ann Davis, MPH, PhD, ABPP discusses the iAmHealthy program at Children's Mercy.
