The number of Oklahoma children who are either overweight or obese continues to rise.

At least 14 percent of Oklahoma's children are obese. Some estimate that number is as high as one-third of children, or one out of every three children.

Join us at 2 p.m. Tuesday on for an online chat with Dr. Ashley Weedn, an Oklahoma City pediatrician and co-director of the  Pediatric Exercising and Eating Responsibly Clinic, a clinic that helps children who are overweight or obese and their families.

You can join our health Q&A’s on the third Tuesday of every month at 2 p.m. and submit your questions about medical care and health issues in Oklahoma.
