Success stories from eight residency programs that participated in the AAFP's Family Medicine Residency Childhood Obesity Initiative were included in a final report on the program, which reached more than 6,000 children and adults through 400 events. The Drexel University Family Medicine Residency Program launched a "Move It With Mommy and Me" program that included nutrition and physical exercise activities for women and children at a homeless shelter, while other residency programs catered to high school students and patients who were overweight or had diabetes.
