What’s Happening?

The Wareham Pediatrics Boston Children’s Hospital Obesity Treatment Research project has been underway for almost 3 months now and we have enrolled almost 20 patients. Our goal is to enroll 46 patients for this novel partnership that combines nutritional and behavioral health counseling via telehealth with medical supervision in the primary care office. Telehealth takes advantage of a program like Skype which allows the specialist from Boston Children’s Hospital to provide their service to the family over the internet in the comfort of your own home. We are hopeful that this project will show the ability to help teens with weight loss. If you, or your child, is between the ages of 10-17 years old and are interested in this program, please contact our office. To learn more about this program, click here.
