New research on innovative ways to prevent, treat childhood obesity presented at AAP conference
Date:10/24/2013

ORLANDO, Fla. -- A special session at the 2013 American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) National Conference & Exhibition in Orlando will highlight innovative, successful ways pediatricians are working to prevent and treat childhood obesity.

The session, from 8 to 11 a.m. Friday, Oct. 25, at the Orange County Convention Center, is hosted by the AAP Institute for Healthy Childhood Weight, which was founded in 2012 to lead the academy's efforts in providing pediatricians, families and communities with evidence-based resources to help prevent and treat childhood obesity.

Friday's session will showcase work being done by AAP chapters and member pediatricians to prevent and treat childhood obesity. After a competitive abstract submission process, six abstracts were chosen for oral presentation and 17 were accepted as posters.

"We are excited to provide this venue to elevate the great work of our members and chapters," said Sandra Hassink, MD, FAAP, chair of the Institute for Healthy Childhood Weight advisory board. "Our hope is to think critically about these innovations and identify where we as the Institute for Healthy Childhood Weight of the American Academy of Pediatrics can try to spread the innovation more broadly."

Poster presentations begin at 8 a.m. , and will focus on innovative approaches to obesity prevention, assessment and treatment that have promising or proven results. Poster abstracts are available for journalists to review while under embargo at https://aap.confex.com/aap/2013/webprogrampress/Session1947.html

At 9 a.m., researchers will present abstracts on primary care interventions to childhood obesity, followed by abstracts on state and national approaches. A full list of speakers and the text of abstracts selected for oral presentations are available for journalists to review while under embargo at https://aap.confex.com/aap/2013/webprogrampress/Session1946.html

The abstracts are embargoed until 12:01 a.m. ET on Oct. 25.
