Speaker - Valerie O’Hara
University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine, Maine, US

Valerie O’Hara graduated from the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine and completed her Pediatric Residency at the Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital at Maine Medical Center in 1999.  Dr. O’Hara, as a board-certified pediatrician, recognized the need to provide evidence-based care for children in Maine with energy dysregulation. Dr. O’Hara conceived, developed, and managed a pediatric weight management clinic in Maine, bringing 20 years of pediatric weight management education and experience to Maine children and their communities. In 2000, Dr. O’Hara joined children’s health colleagues in Maine to establish the Maine Youth Overweight Collaborative which evolved into the Let’s Go Program, now a national initiative by the American Academy of Pediatrics.  Dr. O’Hara is a member of The Obesity Society, The Obesity Medicine Association, and the Obesity Section of the American Academy of Pediatrics and has also published many articles and presented posters related to Telemedicine and Weight management programmes for children.
