Hosted by: Jennifer Caudle
As a family practictioner, one of host Dr. Jennifer Caudle's passions is the health of her child and adolescent patients. Obesity is increasingly prevalent within this population, and it's a health issue that carries increased concerns for developing hypertension. To discuss this risk and how to approach it in practice, Dr. Caudle welcomes Dr. Julie Ingelfinger, Deputy Editor of The New England Journal of Medicine and Professor of Pediatrics at Harvard Medical School. Dr. Ingelfinger is the author of the article, "The Child or Adolescent with Elevated Blood Pressure," published in the New England Journal of Medicine.
