So make no mistake about it, for the past five years, we have been addressing this issue from every angle. And taken together, these changes are finally starting to have an impact. Childhood obesity rates have finally stopped rising, and obesity rates are actually falling among our youngest children...But let’s be clear: While the progress we’ve made is impressive, it’s also incredibly fragile.
— Michelle Obama, The Partnership for a Healthier America 2015 Summit
 

I am a public health professional and writer. My mission is to help families and clinicians talk with ease about how best to help children with obesity. I review the latest childhood obesity research and then translate my findings into informative, compassionate articles to help families and clinicians better understand the prevention and treatment of childhood obesity. I want families and clinicians to have the best information available when they are making medical or lifestyle choices for children with obesity. 

I've been fortunate to have had the opportunity to receive an excellent education and training at Columbia University, BA in Liberal Arts, Albany Medical College, an MS in Bioethics, and the State University of Albany, New York.  MPH in Community Health.
