5210 Let’s Go! is an obesity prevention program of The Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital at Maine Medical Center. This obesity prevention program focuses on daily physical activity and healthy eating for children from birth to 18 years of age. Although this program operates primarily in Maine, it partners with programs throughout the United States.
