Adolescent Obesity Study


Pediatric obesity is a prevalent health issue in the United States, impacting 20% of children and adolescents. Numerous elements can contribute to the accumulation of excess weight, such as behavior, genetics, and specific medication use. Additionally, societal and community factors play a crucial role, encompassing childcare, school settings, affordable and nutritious food availability, and convenient spaces for physical activity.

PriMED Clinical Research is hosting a study for an investigational drug to see if it can help adolescents lose weight along with a healthy diet and exercise.
