Childhood obesity can have a harmful effect on the body in a variety of ways. Recognizing this fact, Ripon Medical Center offers a specialized pediatric fitness program, called healthYouth, to assist area youth, ages six to 18, and their family members develop healthy lifestyle changes through proper nutrition and physical activity. The six-month program involves working with an exercise physiologist and other Ripon Medical Center staff once per week for the first 11 weeks and ends with three monthly sessions. Program participants must obtain a referral from their healthcare provider.
