Pediatric Obesity

About one in five Minnesota children are overweight or obese.

MNAAP’s Pediatric Obesity workgroup is co-chaired by Sarah Jane Schwarzenberg, MD, FAAP, director of Pediatric Gastroenterology at the University of Minnesota, and Jessica Larson, MD, FAAP, the pediatrician at Fairview Elk River Clinic. The group is collecting practical tools, resources, and links for Minnesota pediatricians to use in their practice to help assess, prevent and treat childhood obesity.
