Digital Health Intervention Recommendation

The Community Preventive Services Task Force (CPSTF) recommends digital health interventions to assist adolescents with overweight or obesity with weight management. Evidence shows these interventions lead to small but meaningful weight reductions in adolescents with overweight or obesity. These interventions are for adolescents aged 12-18 years who have overweight or obesity. They combine self-monitoring and goal setting to increase adolescents’ awareness of healthy dietary or physical activity behaviors that help with weight management. Trained personnel moderate programs with oversight by healthcare providers including psychologists, health counselors, dietitians, nurses, and pediatricians. Use this one-pager as a quick reference.
