Thanks @TexAHPERD for inviting The Cooper Institute’s Joel Romo to speak at the TAHPERD 2023 Leadership Conference! It was great to provide an advocacy update to an energized group. Looking forward to the initiatives planned this weekend! #txlege @txlegeobesity

Kudos to AAP for releasing Clinical Practice Guidelines for the Evaluation & Treatment of Children and Adolescents with Obesity:https://publications.aap.org/pediatrics/article/doi/10.1542/peds.2022-060640/190443/Clinical-Practice-Guideline-for-the-Evaluation-and?autologincheck=redirected. Data from our TX CORD project reinforce the need for these new guidelines. https://sph.uth.edu/research/centers/dell/project.htm?project=5102fad1-6dd6-44d6-9330-a515e3e7578b
