Summary of "Psychosocial Characteristic and Health Care for Unemployed Youths with Extreme Obesity - A Model Project."

In clinical care, unemployed youths have limited access to available obesity treatments including obesity surgery. With the implementation of a specialized obesity outpatient unit in cooperation with five German job-centers we aim to prove whether unemployed youths are interested in obesity treatment and how they adhere to a multilevel obesity treatment in terms of participation rates.
