Exciting News about Healthier Generation Benefit

The 2013 special edition of the Journal of Obesity, Childhood Obesity: Today and Tomorrow's Health Challenge contains an article on the Alliance for a Healthier Generation's Healthier Generation Benefit. The article says a 2010-2011 evaluation indicates the benefit is successful in expanding health care coverage for obesity services. As a partner in this program, the Academy is highlighted throughout the article.

According to Victoria Brown, Vice President for the Alliance for a Healthier Generation and co-author of the article: "We are excited about the results of the report and look forward to exploring ways to improve this innovative approach to health care delivery. The efforts of everyone involved confirm that a team-based approach among physicians, dietitians, providers, health care organizations and families is required to eliminate the childhood obesity crisis."

The Academy, the Academy of Pediatrics and the Alliance for a Healthier Generation have partnered since 2009 in the fight against childhood obesity. The Healthier Generation Benefit provides at least four follow-up visits with a primary care provider and at least four visits with a registered dietitian nutritionist per year for children with a BMI in the 85th percentile or higher.
