Obesity Prevention Programs at AltaMed
Solutions & Treatments in Obesity Management & Prevention (STOMP)
STOMP is a 12-month weight control program for kids and is designed to help families live a healthy lifestyle through nutrition and fitness education, motivational messages, medical care and personal consultations.
Sessions are held by a health educator and physical activity specialist. Some topics covered through this program include nutrition basics, reading food labels, food portion sizes, balancing meals, managing social eating and dining out, balancing physical activity with "screen" time, chronic disease prevention, stress management, fun fitness and training, and much more.
Our goal is to impact your health by using various methods to combat the rise of pediatric obesity. This program is currently operating at the following locations and we keep expanding to other AltaMed sites:
