Pediatric Lipid and Weight Management Center

CHaD's Pediatric Lipid and Weight Management Center is designed to evaluate and treat cholesterol and weight management problems in children.

The only center of its kind in the region, CHaD's Pediatric Lipid and Weight Management Center offers expertise in the evaluation and management of children with familial hyperlipidemia or complicated obesity. In addition to clinical care, our broader LiviNHealthy 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 Team

Our multi-disciplinary team is made up of physicians, nurse practitioners, dietitians, health coaches and youth fitness trainers with expertise in weight management and in supporting lifestyle change. In addition, the Center accesses pediatric sub-specialists as needed in Endocrinology, Cardiology, Pulmonology, Nephrology, and Psychiatry to help with management of complex care.
