We Can! Mesa County
(WCMC) is a sustainable, successful program helping families of overweight and obese children make healthy lifestyle changes. The core curriculum is a weekly program incorporating a child/parent visit with a physician, followed by an educational group class and then ending with an active group exercise.
The goal is to increase the family’s health knowledge, improve use of health-related behavior, and stabilize the body mass index of their child. It incorporates the national evidence based We Can! educational curriculum with family visits and motivational interviewing.
