Khalili Foundation Logo

The Khalili Foundation was launched in 2010 by a group of committed physicians who saw the critical need for direct intervention in the lives of young people who are struggling with, or at-risk for, obesity. The Foundation’s mission is to promote healthy lifestyles through education and action, recognizing the need to proactively address the childhood obesity epidemic through early intervention. By working with local organizations to promote childhood obesity awareness and prevention – and connecting the at-risk population with much needed resources – The Foundation seeks to enable children and their families to make better and healthier choices in their everyday living. Our ultimate goal is to break the cycle of obesity through knowledge and empowerment.
