dc.description.abstractPredicting and Addressing Factors of Childhood Obesity Childhood obesity has been a rising concern in the United States for many years. The health risks associated with obesity especially beginning in childhood can be immense, with costs to the wellbeing and mental health of the individual, as well as overwhelming costs to the healthcare system. Addressing childhood obesity has been of great importance and need especially with the understanding that reducing the impact involves a multifaceted approach. Current research has looked at many points that impact children’s obesity, this study sought to look at multiple variables within the same data set to determine what the factors that predict outcomes of childhood obesity are, so that methods to combat this crisis can be developed using this information. Data for this study came from the Child Mind Institute’s Healthy Brain Network. Data points evaluated included demographics relating to the child and family situation, sleep duration, food availability, Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and the diagnoses of the children in the data set. After the predictive factors of childhood obesity are discussed, the implication for social work practice, policy and education are examined.en_US
