For families with a concern about a child’s weight and health, our Families in Training program is one of the most comprehensive approaches in the country. Founded on the principles of behavior change and family-centered care, Brenner FIT aims to help families in North Carolina and beyond make lasting lifestyle changes.
Brenner FIT is an evidence-based program that focuses on the treatment of obesity in children ages 2 to 18 who have a medical concern related to their weight. A physician referral is required, and treatment involves the entire family.
