Pediatric Lipid and Weight Management Center
The only center of its kind in the region, the PLWMC offers expertise in the evaluation and management of children with familial hyperlipidemia or complicated obesity. In addition to clinical care, the program aims to promote healthy communities, support obesity prevention and treatment in primary care, and link with research efforts that bring innovation to future prevention and treatment efforts.
Our multi-disciplinary team is made up of physicians, nurse practitioners, dietitians and youth fitness trainers specifically trained in obesity management. In addition, the CHaD Pediatric Lipid and Weight Management Center accesses pediatric sub-specialists as needed in Endocrinology, Cardiology, Pulmonology, Nephrology, and Psychiatry to help children and their families manage the complexities of lipid and obesity problems and improve quality of life.
