Palo Alto-Based Kurbo Health Tackles Childhood Obesity
For Joanna Strober, the problem was clear -- her 11-year-old son needed to lose weight. His doctors kept telling her so, but the trouble was Strober, who didn't feed him fast food or bring soda into the house, didn't know exactly how to make that happen. And no one was helping her. So Strober launched Palo Alto-based Kurbo Health, an online and mobile weight loss program for children ages 7 to 18. Now more than two years old, the app has been used by more than 100,000 kids around the world to help them achieve a healthier weight, she says. (Kendall, 6/29)
