Child and Adolescent Health

The goal of this project is to adapt an evidence-based group lifestyle intervention for adults (the Group Lifestyle Balance curriculum) for overweight and obese PAMF adolescent patients and to identify the most effective method of delivering this new intervention to this patient population.
