Advocate's healthy active living and proactive kids
This is a resource you need to know about so you can help your pediatric patients who struggle with overweight and obesity. We are accepting referrals for 2019!
ProActive Kids and Advocate Children's Hopital have been partners for over 7 years, working together to offer health programs to children and their families who struggle with weight in Downers Grove, Oak Lawn and Park Ridge.
ProActive Kids will now be offered as part of Advocate's Healthy Active Living Program so participants can receive more support by doctors, dietitians, and mental health coaches for a longer period of time to ensure maximum success!
The ProActive Kids program will remain the same, helping children learn to live a healthier lifestyle through group fitness, nutrition and lifestyle coaching, in a group setting for 8 weeks. Then, they will continue with HAL. The complete health plan is listed below.
