Center In Greenville Tackles Childhood Obesity

Childhood obesity is an ever growing problem, too. Nearly 30 percent of children in Eastern North Carolina are overweight. Seven-year-old Tiffany Anderson is part of that statistic. She has high cholesterol, a risk factor for obesity. But now a new center in Greenville is taking strides to change that statistic. The Pediatric Healthy Weight and Treatment Center opened in 2003. It's a center Tiffany goes to that will help her change her eating and lifestyle habits, so other risk factors don't present themselves. The Pediatric Healthy Weight and Treatment Center is doing big things. Recently they presented their findings on reducing childhood obesity and a children's health care conference in Washington D.C.
