CHKD’s Healthy You for Life program added a new location in Virginia Beach at the CHKD Health Center at Landstown. Virginia Beach families now have convenient access to services designed to help children gain control of their weight and improve their health. The wait time for patients to get in at this location is only a couple of weeks.

Beginning May 1, 2017, Healthy You for Life will no longer offer a clinic at Oakbrooke in Chesapeake. Clinics will be offered at the locations listed below.

 

New group fitness classes are offered through Sports Medicine. Children do not have to be enrolled in Healthy You for Life to participate. Out-of-pocket cost for fitness classes is $35 for 16 classes. Classes are offered with open rolling enrollment twice a week, year round in the following locations:

Children ages 3-18 who have weight-related health problems are eligible for referral to CHKD's Healthy You for Life program. Healthy You for Life's multi-disciplinary team includes a physician, nurse, nurse practitioner, exercise specialists, registered dietitians and behavioral counselors. Children and their parents work with the team on nutrition, including diet and meal planning, physical activity, goal setting and emotional support. Referral forms may be downloaded here.
