What is Communities in Motion, and what does it have to do with orthopaedics?
One in five children in the U.S. has obesity. Those children have an 80 percent chance of becoming an adult with obesity. Obesity and nutrition choices can impact life-long health conditions that lead to soft-tissue damage and osteoarthritis, which makes it an orthopaedic problem. Your AAOS has been a leader in promoting healthy bone and joint behaviors and lifestyle choices.
