Healthy Living Clinic
The May 2008 edition of the Journal of the American Medical Association obesity is referred to as a "current epidemic amongst children." Citing the most recent National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys for 2003 through 2006 it states that 16.3% of children ages 2-19 are overweight, with an additional 15.6% considered at risk of becoming overweight. In response to this growing problem First Choice KidCare has launched its Healty Living and Weight Management Clinic which provides parents and their children valuable educational information about practicing good eating habits and the importance of engaging in regular physical activities. The Clinic meets at Family Health Centers' Downtown Fort Myers Center located at 2232 Grand Avenue. For further information about enrolling in the Clinic please call Sandra at (239) 344-2342.
