This course will help you to understand the genetic, environmental and behavioural interactions that lead to children and adolescents developing overweight and obesity. It will explore the effects of weight stigma and will look at the effects that the diseases of overweight and obesity have on children as they grow into adults. It will also look at the treatment options available now and how these may develop in the future.
