OAKLAND, Calif., Dec. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Kaiser Permanente and Discovery Health's Continuing Medical Education (CME) program have teamed up to launch "Healthy Steps to Treating Childhood Obesity", an educational program designed to instruct physicians and healthcare professionals about childhood obesity and the necessary steps to treat and prevent this epidemic. The program was funded through an unrestricted educational grant from Kaiser Permanente.

The CME program, co-developed by a group of Kaiser Permanente Pediatric experts and Discovery Health CME, will air on Sunday, December 16 at 9 a.m. ET/PT on Discovery Health and again several times through 2008.

"Childhood obesity is a multifaceted issue that requires a network of support from families, clinicians and entire communities," said Philip Wu M.D., Pediatric Clinical Lead for Kaiser Permanente Care Management Institute's Weight Management Initiative. "Our goal in creating this program is to disseminate evidence-based recommendations to clinicians, who can then encourage families to start making environmental and lifestyle changes to improve the total health of their children."

"Discovery Health CME was pleased to work with Kaiser on this critical issue facing America's children. With our premiere just days after the new, aggressive childhood obesity guidelines were published in Pediatrics, the timing couldn't be better to provide health care providers the information they need in a succinct, engaging format," according to John Whyte, MD, MPH, Vice President for Continuing Medical Education at Discovery Health.
Highlights of the CME program include:
