While it may take a village to raise a child, Dr. Colony Fugate and Dr. Teri Bourdeau know it takes an even greater commitment to raise a healthy child. Fugate, a pediatrician at OSU-CHS and medical director of the OSU Family Health and Nutrition Clinic, believes it takes an entire community to address the many underlying issues that impact Oklahoma's obesity level.

Fugate and Bourdeau, a clinical psychologist at OSU-CHS, are using an evidence-based approach to combat childhood obesity through the Tulsa-based clinic. Working with Sara Malone, a licensed dietitian, and Kerry Morgan, the clinic's certified health education specialist and a clinical instructor in the School of Applied Health and Educational Psychology at OSU-Tulsa, the OSU team has developed a program to support children who are overweight or obese and their families.

They have also built community partnerships with other local and state organizations to extend the clinic's reach and developed new curricula to provide OSU students with the skills to address weight issues in Oklahoma's communities.
