Morbid obesity in adolescents is a major regional and national health problem. There is mounting evidence in favor of considering morbidly overweight adolescents for obesity surgery when changes in diet, exercise and behavior have been unsuccessful. Join Drs. David Lanning and Claudio Oiticica as they discuss a newly developed surgical weight loss program for adolescents at Children's Hospital of Richmond at VCU's Healthy Lifestyles Center. The seminar is free and open to the public, but registration is recommended. For more information or to register, call (804) 828-0123 or email seminars@mcvh-vcu.edu
