Event Description

Full Description:
Overweight and obesity in childhood is a critically important health care issue. Currently more than one in four Australian children and adolescents are classified as overweight or obese which can be associated with many serious short and long term health outcomes.

Despite this, current public weight management services remain limited and inconsistent and there is no integrated sustainable approach embedded across the system to address the issue. Jacki will present her current research work which aims to investigate, develop and disseminate integrated approaches to paediatric overweight and obesity prevention and management in Queensland.

Dr Jacqueline Walker is a Research Fellow at the UQ School of Human Movement and Nutrition Sciences. Her doctoral degree in paediatric nutrition focused on energy balance and body composition in children with cerebral palsy.
