Weight and Wellness Clinic patients often have high blood pressure, high cholesterol and Type 2 diabetes. They’re also teens, elementary schoolers, and some are as young as 2, dealing with illnesses usually associated with people 40 years older than they are.
The pediatric Weight and Wellness Clinic focuses not only on pounds but on other related conditions and on making positive changes in the lives of patients and their families.
Offered at the University Physicians-Grants Ferry clinic as well as at the Children’s of Mississippi Specialty Clinic, the clinic offers medical evaluations. Nutritional services with a registered dietitian nutritionist and psychology services are integral parts of care.
