Childhood Overweight and Obesity – An Introduction with Dr Margarita Tsiros

As primary contact practitioners, physiotherapists have a window of opportunity to positively influence childhood overweight and obesity. Using an interactive virtual classroom, this introductory session for physiotherapists will outline childhood overweight and obesity, suitable assessment tools, co-morbidities relevant for physiotherapists and physiotherapy management. The session will be presented by Dr Margarita Tsiros, and will form a foundation for a follow-up webinar that will be made available for participants seeking further information about diet and nutrition for this population.
