ABSTRACT

Obesity is the number one health issue in the United States today. As a result, clinicians are observing health complications at an increasingly earlier age. There are many obesity programs nationwide, but many lack the crucial involvement of the primary health practitioner, as well as close involvement of all family members. It is vital that the primary health practitioner understand and be familiar with working collaboratively with families and communities to seek out unique solutions to this ever-increasing problem in our nation.
