Parents and caregivers must make healthy child weight their priority if we are to see continued progress in the fight against childhood obesity. Dr. Dianne Ward and the Children’s Healthy Weight Research group have focused their research on developing innovative tools and strategies to encourage and support this effort.


Vision: All individuals live, work, learn and play in communities that support optimal health and wellness.

Mission: We are dedicated to supporting caregivers and those in their care through equitable, innovative strategies that promote health and wellness.
