Childhood obesity is an epidemic facing Central Texas and communities across the country. Dell Children’s takes an active role in finding new ways to fight pediatric obesity trends and help kids lead happier, more active lifestyles.
In addition to clinical treatment and medical research into obesity issues, we are working toward childhood obesity prevention through educational outreach and community advocacy of healthier choices and activities.
