Help Your Loved One Today


Obesity occurs when a person’s excess body fat has a negative effect on one’s health; medical professionals typically diagnose obesity via body mass index, or BMI. BMI is calculated by dividing weight by height.

17% of American children and adolescents struggle with obesity and weight loss. If not treated or controlled, obesity may cause cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, sleep apnea, some cancers, and osteoarthritis. Obesity may also be linked to depression and low self-esteem.

Participation Requirements

Your pre-teen or teen may qualify if he/she:

  • Is between the ages of 12 and 17
  • Has a BMI greater than the 95th percentile for age and gender
  • Has documented history of failure to lose weight or maintain weight loss in a lifestyle modification program
