About the Journal Club

The COMP Journal Club meets bi-monthly to discuss current, relevant research articles on issues concerning child overweight.  You will find links to articles discussed at each meeting on this website.
The COMP Journal Club's learning objectives are:

At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to:
  • Identify new evidence-based research strategies for treating overweight children
  • Counsel patients and their guardians about intervention methods and their expected impacts
  • Identify factors contributing to child overweight and the mechanics of the contributions of these factors to co-occurring conditions.

Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine Division of Continuing Medical Education designates this educational activity for a maximum of category 1 credits toward the AMA Physician's Recognition Award. Each physician should claim only those credits that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.
