Moving beyond weight-centered approaches in childhood obesity
In this episode, we sit down with guest Wendy Schofer, a pediatrician, to discuss the current state of childhood obesity and the need for a change in approach. Over the past two decades, the prevalence of children being diagnosed as overweight and obese has increased. However, the reasons behind this are still unknown. The conventional approach to childhood weight focuses on controlling it, but labeling it creates shame and fear, which can negatively impact mental health. Wendy advocates for shifting the focus from weight to improving the relationship with food, bodies, and our kids. Join the conversation and learn how to promote healthy lifestyles for children.
Wendy Schofer is a pediatrician.
She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, “It’s time to stop focusing on family weight.”

With so many demands on their time, physicians today report record levels of burnout. Burnout is caused by many factors, one of which is clinical documentation. Studies indicate physicians spend two hours documenting care for every hour spent with patients.
At Nuance, we are committed to helping physicians do what you love – care for patients – and spend less time on clinical documentation. The Nuance Dragon Ambient eXperience, or DAX for short, is an AI-powered, ambient clinical intelligence solution that automatically captures patient encounters securely and accurately at the point of care. Physicians who use DAX have reported a 50 percent decrease in documentation time and a 70 percent reduction in feelings of burnout, and 83 percent of patients say their physician is more personable and conversational.
Rediscover the joy of medicine with clinical documentation that writes itself, all within the EHR.
