Discovering Inspire

Northern Arizona Healthcare Inspire, a service of Children’s Health Center, helps kids and their families learn about healthier ways to live. Today, children and adolescents in the area are learning how to take better care of themselves, eat better and become more physically fit — and they’re having a blast.

Focusing on Health

Our program is designed to motivate kids and educate families on developing and maintaining healthy habits.

The Inspire clinic team provides one-on-one education and support in making small, healthy changes to last a lifetime. Through consistent, flexible appointments with each practitioner, families learn how to improve their health and receive support in making goals for change.

Impact of childhood obesity

  • Obese children have an increased risk of developing high blood pressure and high cholesterol, which are both risk factors for heart disease.
  • Obese children are at increased risk of being bullied and suffering from depression, while a healthy diet and physical activity in childhood is associated with better mental health.
  • Obesity can also cause sleep apnea, bone and joint problems, and chronic health conditions such as asthma and type 2 diabetes.

The Inspire program takes pride in bringing families together through healthy habits. Read our newsletter to learn what the Inspire program has to offer.
