Hawaii 5210 Let's Go and Healthcare

Pediatric health care providers are very concerned about the rise in childhood obesity but this sensitive and very personal issue can be difficult to address. The Hawaii Initiative for Childhood Obesity Research and Education (HICORE) and the Hawaii 5210 Initiative are developing tools to help pediatric providers gather information about patient lifestyles, counsel kids and their parents on growth and risk for obesity-related chronic disease and educate them about healthy lifestyles using the 5-2-1-0 framework. These materials are available for you to download and print here. Providers can also get colored copies from many local health plans including HMSA, UHA, Kaiser Permanente and AlohaCare.
