You know many of your young patients and families are overweight. Yet, how effective are your 15-minute sessions with each family? How do you overcome the electronic buzz, the marketing messages, the cultural teases, and the whispers of your patients' peers to get them to eat and live well?
Kaiser Permanente (KP) has found a unique, health promotion strategy that complements the clinical messaging targeted to young people: the Educational Theatre Program (ETP). This program engages children in interactive productions to help them think about the choices they make that affect their health.
