Healthy Lifestyles Program: This is an innovative weight management program since 2003, designed to address the special needs of overweight and obese pre-teens and teens. After initial individual evaluation by the Healthy Lifestyles Multidisciplinary Team (pediatric endocrinologist, pediatric physiatrist, pediatric psychologist, pediatric dietician, pediatric social worker), patients and parents meet once weekly for 12 weeks in small groups with the dietician, psychologist and physiatrist to learn step-by-step how to make healthier lifestyle choices and overcome barriers to success. In the final week, patients “graduate” but continue to be followed periodically over the year for support. The program was recognized with a National Association of Public Hospitals Award in 2004 and has been featured on local news programs and newspapers.
Sickle Cell Comprehensive Care Program: Patients with sickle cell disease will have all their healthcare needs addressed in the clinic — routine primary care as well as care addressing their special healthcare needs, done in consultation with our pediatric hematologist.
Pediatric H.I.V. Comprehensive Care Program: A multidisciplinary team including a specially trained physician, nurse, dietician and social worker work together to address the total healthcare needs of the child and teen with H.I.V. infection. Social and developmental needs are addressed in group recreational programs and special events.
Asthma Management Program: A pediatric pulmonologist, allergist, asthma health educator and pediatric nurse practitioner work together to meet the needs of the child with asthma. Emphasis is on education, avoiding visits to the Emergency Department and preventing missed school.
