A New Center to Combat Youth Obesity


The battle against childhood obesity, a major public health challenge, has been reinforced since December 1st, 2023, by the opening of the Multidisciplinary Pediatric Center for Obesity (CMPO) at the Children's Hospital. The CMPO offers an outpatient care pathway supported by the state (INAMI), ensuring the free provision of paramedical consultations.

This new healthcare model aims to provide comprehensive and personalized care to meet the specific needs of overweight youth.
