St. Luke's Clinic - Weight Intervention and Nutrition

Our weight intervention and nutrition clinic evaluates and treats young children who aren't keeping pace with height and/or weight growth rates for their ages, a condition called failure to thrive. Our clinic provider, a dietitian, and a social worker will work to educate, empower, and support you and your family while we monitor your child. 

Failure to thrive can have many causes, and our team will create a customized approach so your child is well supported in growth and development.

Referrals are required.
