    New Podcast: Measuring Body Mass

    The value of gathering information on body mass on patients or clients is the focus of a new podcast in the recently launched series titled Extracting Hidden Gems from Simple Clinical Measures: The Why, How, and Then What?

    Excess body mass or obesity has been identified as a critical health issue in the United States and around the world. Learn what data physical therapists should gather and what to do with it, and find additional resources on body mass index, in this prerecorded podcast that discusses the anthropometric characteristic of body mass.
