BlubberBusters.com is supervised by a professional advisory board consisting of
a pediatrician, a pediatric dietitian, a nationally recognized psychologist, who
specializes in teen weight issues, and a nurse practitioner - attorney.
The mission of BlubberBusters.com is
simply to serve as an aid to children, teenagers,
and parents in their struggle with being overweight. It allows kids, teens,
and parents from all over
the world to interact with each other and to support each other. It further
allows healthcare providers to follow the progress of their overweight pediatric
patients on the website, as well as to interact with them, and to provide
support and care, in other words to provide
"e-Care." E-Care saves travel
time for patients, allows closer monitoring of their progress, and saves time for
their healthcare providers. We hope that our site is useful to you.
