Healthy Weight Program

The Healthy Weight Program advances the prevention and treatment of childhood obesity by integrating excellence in clinical care, research, quality education and community advocacy.

The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia gathered 48 internal experts and advisors, from disciplines and divisions Hospital-wide, to develop a multidisciplinary, comprehensive and innovative program targeting pediatric obesity. The Healthy Weight Initiative launched in August 2005, renamed the Healthy Weight Program (HWP) in 2006.
