Changing the Face of Childhood Obesity: Why We Have to Target the Family As The Unit to Change and Not the Children
PRLog - March 27, 2015 - GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. -- FamilyWellnessMD has been recognized as one of the top businesses in metro Atlanta in the category of Healthcare with a nomination for a 2015 IMPACT Regional Business Award.
FamilyWellnessMD is a holistic medical center that aims to create an atmosphere of wholeness and healing using medical knowledge and alternative healing strategies. They specialize in treating children who are overweight. Dr. Nadia Taylor, Founder, says, “We are focused on healthy nutrition and fitness for the whole family. One of the challenges that I’ve faced in trying to combat childhood obesity is that if, ‘Momma doesn’t change; nobody changes.’ Mom is the key decision-maker typically when it comes to food choices in the home. Why not include her as the team captain in our quest for healthier families? Our center includes a nutrition library where patients can check out resources on healthy eating and exercise and a fitness room where 1-on-1 personal training or group fitness classes can take place.” Dr. Taylor says, “I created this primarily because I was tired of telling kids what to do. I decided it was time to show them.” More information can be found at www.familywellnessmd.com.
The 2015 IMPACT Regional Business Award is designed to be reflective and unique to Gwinnett. The Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce will honor and celebrate exemplary organizations from the community at the IMPACT Regional Business Awards on Wednesday, May 13 from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. at the Gwinnett Center.

“The IMPACT Regional Business Awards celebrate premier organizations in critical industries that are driving economic development and job creation, while enhancing our quality of life,” said Dr. Dan Kaufman, President & CEO of the Gwinnett Chamber.
