The country's leading health researchers call obesity the top nutrition problem in the United States. More than half of all adults are overweight and a third are obese, according to the National Institutes of Health, and as many as 20 percent of children are obese. Meanwhile, the Surgeon General's "Report on Physical Activity and Health" found exercise and physical activity among everyone from school-age children to adults to be at an all-time low. And, childhood and adolescent obesity is an increasingly important predictor of adult obesity. This program is designed to produce providers of comprehensive weight management care for children and adolescents who also know when and how to refer patients to other specialists. This certificate program is only open to Active, Student, International and Retired category members of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and CDR credentialed practitioners — RDN™* RD™*, NDTR™** DTR™**. Program registrations will not be processed until these requirements have been verified.
