Why Weight Guide
Created by the Strategies to Overcome and Prevent (STOP) Obesity Alliance, the Why Weight? tool is a guide for health care professionals to initiate effective conversations about weight and health with their patients.
Obesity Care Competencies
the Provider Competencies for the Prevention and Management of Obesity were designed by more than 20 leading health organizations representing a dozen health professions. They are aimed at many types of health professionals engaged in obesity prevention and management. Collectively, the competencies establish a working knowledge of obesity, and are therefore best used together. Recognizing that the depth of knowledge or skill for a given competency will vary based on specialty, each specialty is encouraged to adapt these competencies to fit their needs.
Weigh In Guide
Weigh In: Talking to Your Children About Weight and Health(Hablar Con Sus Hijos Sobre el Peso y la Salud) is an online guide created by STOP Obesity Alliance and Alliance for a Healthier Generation to fill the information gap and offer practical advice for parents struggling with how to discuss weight and health with their children.
