104 Pediatric Physical Activity

Physical activity is a critical building block of good health, but is not emphasized in medical education, especially in the pediatric population 

This CME activity will help to close this knowledge gap and assist health care professionals in understanding how, when and what types of physical activity approaches and interventions might be used in conjunction with conventional therapies to enhance pediatric care. Example of this include accruing data in children on the cardiovascular, weight, and mental health benefits of regular physical activity.  

Pediatricians who are updated on literature and clinical research in the field will be able to better counsel families and be prepared to offer more comprehensive treatment options. 

Outcome Objectives

  • Identify pediatric patients that could potentially benefit from integrative medicine physical activity-focused treatment options. 
  • Determine which medical conditions have robust supporting evidence for the use of physical activity-based integrative medicine treatment options in children.
  • Teach clinicians how to better educate parents about physical activity-based integrative medicine treatment options for their children.
