Arnaldo Perez led the day-to-day activities for Study 5.2: Predictors of treatment initiation for children with severe obesity referred for tertiary-level management of obesity while completing his PhD at UAlberta under the supervision of Dr. Ball.
We’re proud to share that his work was recently published in The Journal of Pediatrics! His cross-sectional study included 2014 children (2-17 years of age; body mass index of ≥85th percentile) referred to multidisciplinary clinical care in Alberta. Results showed that less than 40% of those referred enrolled in care, highlighting the need to enhance treatment uptake for pediatric weight management, especially boys and girls with severe obesity.
Other Team ABC3 members on the publication included Katerina Maximova, Nick Holt, Josephine Ho, Paola Luca, and Geoff Ball.
Way to go, team!
