In 2005 the American Heart Association and the Clinton Foundation teamed up to develop an alliance against childhood obesity. What resulted is a fantastic initiative that systematically looks at our environment and incentivizes preventive services and healthier surroundings.
RD Coverage: The Alliance has worked with the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics to offer comprehensive health benefits to children and families for preventive and treatment services surrounding childhood obesity. Eligible children have access to four visits with an RD for nutrition services. [Fellow RDs, learn about how to become a provider here!]
