Healthy Ways Clinic
The Healthy Ways Clinic's mission is to educate, empower and inspire families in a fun and supportive environment to live a healthy, active lifestyle.
We believe children and teenagers have better outcomes when a supportive and active family is involved in their lives. Results from the Healthy Ways Clinic are closely related to the family's motivation to make a change. We value each family's input and believe working together provides the best results.
We are a family-centered, collaborative and interdisciplinary program focused on helping families lead healthier lives. Our core clinic team includes pediatric specialists in medicine, psychology, nutrition, physical therapy and nursing. Our program is created around and based on each individual case. It is also flexible for family and patient needs and differences. We focus on helping families make healthier choices in their diets, physical activity and related behaviors.
Our program has two phases:
- The first phase is 16 weeks. Your child and family will have five to eight individual visits with the clinic team.
- The second phase lasts about 12 months. The child and family have routine clinic visits every three months.
The Healthy Ways Clinic is for children and their families who struggle to maintain a healthy weight. We accept children 2 to 18 years of age with a Body Mass Index (BMI) above the 85th percentile for age and gender.
The Healthy Ways Clinic requires a referral from your child's primary care doctor or another doctor providing care. The referral form is available here or by calling the clinic to request a copy faxed to your doctor's office.
