Koala Childhood Obesity Program

The Koala Childhood Obesity program is a long-term research study set up by Dr Gary Leong in 2007.

The aim of the project to provide a ‘Holistic Approach’ to managing children aged 6 to 10 years who are overweight or obese.

Children who participate in the study are assessed by a Specialist Paediatrician and have access to Occupational Therapists and Dieticians.

QFAB created the Koala website and also provides a secure site for the doctors, occupational therapists & dieticians to submit the data collected for the project.
