Using the CDC BMI-for-age Growth Charts to Assess Growth Among Children and Teens Aged 2 to 20 Years in the United States
Welcome to the online training course, Using the CDC BMI-for-age Growth Charts to Assess Growth in the United States Among Children Aged 2 to 20 Years.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the American Academy of Pediatrics recommend that health care providers in primary care settings in the United States, use the 2000 CDC BMI-for-age growth charts to monitor the growth of children and teens aged 2 until aged 20 years, and use the 2022 Extended BMI-for-age growth charts for children with very high body mass index (above the 97th percentile).
This course was developed by the CDC to train health care providers and others who measure and assess growth on how to use the 2000 CDC BMI-for-age growth charts to assess growth among children and teens aged 2 to 20 years.
