Pediatric Obesity Stories

Usually, the most powerful stories come from the people (in this case kids) living with the issue.

A new website feature some of the work by pre-med and public policy students on the kids participating in Duke University’s Healthy Lifestyles program (Dr. Sarah Armstrong).

Eight short multimedia pieces feature the first-person stories of the kids and their families.

These efforts are part of the “Documenting Medicine Program” at the Duke University Center for Documentary Studies.

A very powerful document on childhood obesity and how kids and their families are trying to deal with this problem.
