The Childhood Obesity Multi Program Analysis and Study System (COMPASS) is an outgrowth of the Association’s initiative FOCUS on a Fitter Future, a multi-disciplinary collaborative convened to study clinical pediatric weight management programs and build censuses on practice improvement. COMPASS has completed one multi-site research study and has several more currently underway.
Beginning this month COMPASS is now recruiting new sites to join the network to participate in multi-site research on topics related to the clinical care of overweight and obese children and adolescents.
