Community Benefit Spotlight – United Health Services fights childhood obesity

Childhood obesity is linked to a higher chance of premature death and disability in adulthood. Overweight and obese children are more likely to stay obese into adulthood and develop noncommunicable diseases like diabetes and cardiovascular diseases.

Partnering with local agencies, United Health Services is committed to fighting childhood obesity in their community. To learn more about this initiative and its results, read our full story.
