CVMC’s Healthy House offers a pediatric prevention program, one of
the only initiatives of its kind in the nation, targeting at-risk children
through a partnership with Catawba County’s Head Start program.
According to national data, at-risk children include those from lower-income
families or those whose parents (one or both) are obese. The pediatric
treatment program is currently open to any child in Catawba County who
qualifies to participate.
