Date:9/7/2010

New Rochelle, NY, September 7, 2010Publisher Mary Ann Liebert announced the launch of Childhood Obesity to provide physicians, nurses, dietitians, diabetes educators, nutritionists, psychologists, educators and school nurses, community organizers, and policymakers with effective prevention and treatment strategies that promote environmental and policy changes, patient education and motivation tools, and clinical advances in the field. The Journal, which is an outgrowth of Obesity and Weight Management, has a very broad mission to be the premier journal and central forum on childhood and adolescent obesity. The inaugural issue is available free online (www.liebertpub.com/chi).

Each issue delivers action-oriented content including original peer-reviewed articles; editorials and perspectives from opinion leaders; interviews; roundtable discussions; new weight management initiatives; prevention and education strategies; exploration of health disparities and cultural sensitivity; successful obesity prevention school program profiles; nonprofit and government initiatives and programs; global obesity update; Literature Watch; Web Watch; and other actionable news and developments.

Childhood Obesity is being launched with a grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation to ensure that it is accessible as widely as possible, and to provide a framework that addresses the social and environmental conditions that influence opportunities for children to have access to healthy, affordable food and safe places to play and be physically active.

The journal editorial board includes luminaries in the field such as Kelly Brownell, PhD; Stephen Daniels, MD, PhD; John Foreyt, PhD; Gary Foster, PhD; Elizabeth Goodman, MD; David Heber, MD, PhD; David Katz, MD; Francine Kaufman, MD; David Ludwig, MD, PhD; Bernadette Melnyk, PhD, RN; Sandra Hassink, MD, FAAP; Linda Van Horn, PhD, RD; Sachiko St. Jeor, PhD, RD; Melinda Sothern, PhD, CEP; Mary Story, PhD, RD; Shikha Sundaram, MD, MSCI; Angie Tagtow, MS, RD, LD;and Brian Wansink, PhD. The full editorial board is available on our website (http://www.liebertpub.com/products/eboard.aspx?pid=384).

Collaborating organizations include the American Association of Diabetes Educators, American College of Sports Medicine, American Dietetic Association, and American Academy of Family Physicians.

The premier issue includes an editorial by Regina M. Benjamin, MD, MBA, U.S. Surgeon General, and a series of eleven essays on "Childhood Obesity: How Do We Seize the Moment?" including "Stop the Blame and Start the Action: Preventing Generation Z from Becoming XXL" by Keith-Thomas Ayoob, EdD, RD, FADA; "Tobacco, Formula, and Frequent Pregnancies: The Obesity Trinity" by Melinda S. Sothern, PhD, CEP, "First Assess Then Address" by Linda Van Horn, PhD, RD, and "Restoring the Promise of a Healthy Childhood" by Sandra G. Hassink, MD, FAAP.

David Katz, MD, MPH sets the stage for the challenges ahead with a perspective piece on "It Does, Indeed, Take a Village: Schools, Families, and Beyond for Weight Control in Children." Other features include a provocative roundtable discussion on "Improving Access to Care for African-American and Latino Children and Adolescents: Barriers and Opportunities" moderated by Monica Baskin, PhD and original articles such as "Does Breastfeeding Protect Against Overweight and Obesity in Children? A Review," "Motivational Interviewing for Families with an Overweight / Obese Child," and "Making Fit Kids: The Evolution of a Hospital-Based Childhood Obesity Program in New York City."

Gail C. Christopher, DN, vice president of program strategy with the W.K. Kellogg Foundation provides a welcome for the reader and a vision for the path forward in "A New Voice Emerges in the Fight Against Childhood Obesity."

"The epidemic of childhood obesity must be stopped and reversed to ensure the health of children and alleviate many serious consequences when they become adults," says Mary Ann Liebert, president and CEO of the privately held publishing company that bears her name. "Our task is huge. Childhood Obesity will play an important role in achieving First Lady Michelle Obama's goal of ensuring that this new generation shapes up to a healthy weight by the time they reach adulthood."

Childhood Obesity will be published bimonthly in print and online.
