Quality Initiatives

Weight Management

APP has developed an ambitious program to identify and manage obesity and its medical complications in the pediatric population.   Our pediatricians and nurse practitioners have been able to gain skills in identifying children at risk, provide all children and their families with a universal message for maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and evaluate children for associated problems such as diabetes and elevated cholesterol.  In addition, our practices are partnering with community-based resources to promote the need for exercise opportunities and healthy dietary choices.
