Western Sydney Diabetes presents a forum for health professionals on the Prevention, Assessment and Treatment of Children and Adolescents with Overweight and Obesity.
This forum aims to provide information, tips and tools for health professionals to assist in identifying and treating a child and adolescent with overweight or obesity in a sensitive and appropriate manner. The session will also look at strategies for the prevention of obesity in early childhood.
