Briefly describe your research question :

It is well know that obesity leads to many chronic diseases. We also know that genetic, behavioral and environmental factors contribute to this continuously growing disease. However, there is insufficient investigation into if pharmaceutical intervention in children could stop and reverse obesity in children, and in turn prevent long term chronic diseases.
