Perspectives: Before you came to Einstein Physicians Pennypack, you worked as a pediatric nurse practitioner at a practice in Upper Bucks County. You have a special interest in childhood obesity. Do you see any differences between obesity among chldren in Upper Bucks County and children in Philadelphia's Northeast?

Katelyn Schafer: Obesity is truly an epidemic and it does not discriminate. We see childhood obesity in all ages, ethnic groups, and children with different socioeconomic status. Having said that, I do feel there are subtle differences in each community.  One community may have more play- and exercise-related programs after school, while another community’s school districts may really focus on the school lunches and what’s offered in the school vending machines. In addition, coming from the Bucks-Mont area to here, I see differences in the way obesity is viewed by parents and by the children.
