The American Academy of Pediatrics is offering a free 60-minute webinar on Friday, January 20, 2017 at 1:00 pm Central time. The webinar will focus on the evidence-based treatment for children with obesity and the critical components of a family-based treatment model.
Before heading off into the break, we reflected on how much we valued the incredible members of Team ABC3. From the progress of our individual studies, the success of our trainees, and the impact of our first AGM, 2016 was a very productive and educational year! Thanks to all of you for your time, energy, dedication, and collaboration.
We look forward to another big year ahead for our team. Please accept our warmest wishes to you and your families this Holiday Season.
Nicole and Geoff
