With overwhelming supportfrom The King’s Daughters, the philanthropic organization that foundedCHKD, the milk bank went fromconcept to reality in under 18 months.The King’s Daughters is a charitableorganization that was founded in 1896to promote superior pediatric wellness for every child in southeasternVirginia. One of the early endeavors of this organization was the Milk and Ice Fund, whichoperated in the early 1900s collecting pennies to provide milk and ice to local families inneed. Upon learning of the hospital’s donor human milk treatment program for preterminfants, funding the start up of the milk bank at CHKD became the King’s Daughters mission.Since June, the response from the community has exceeded all expectations. During thefirst few months of operation, The King’s Daughters Milk Bank has initiated the screeningprocess for more than 100 potential donors and has accepted over 35,000 ounces of breastmilk. Deliveries to the CHKD NICU preemies began immediately, and the milk bank is readyto provide pasteurized donor milk to other neonatal intensive care units in the state that arecurrently purchasing donor milk or are interested in starting a donor human milk treatmentprogram.Donor Screening and Milk Processing:The milk bank follows strict screening, processing, and testing guidelines that is similar tothat of blood banking. The HMBANA guidelines were written with the help of the Center forDisease Control (CDC), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the blood and tissuebanking industry. All costs of screening are covered by the King’s Daughter’s Milk Bank,there is no charge to donors.How are donors screened? Donor mothers are screened verbally and by written survey for lifestyle and medical history. The milk bank staff obtains approval letters and prenatal screening results from both themother’s OB-GYN and the donor child’s pediatrician. Serological screening is performed for HIV 0/I/II, HTLV I/II, Hepatitis B and C and syphilis ata LabCorp facility and at the milk bank’s expense. After screening, local moms can drop off their milk donation at the milk bank or we willarrange for overnight shipping at our expense.

VIRGINIA PEDIATRICS2. (cont.) The King’s Daughters Milk Bank at CHKDHow is donor milk processed?Frozen donor milk is thawed, pooled, homogenized and sealed in tamper evident, BPAfree bottles. The donor milk is then pasteurized (heated to 62.5C for 30 minutes to killany potential bacteria/viruses). Pasteurized milk is quickly cooled and frozen at -20C.Microbiological cultures are obtained after pasteurization. Only milk that remains bacterial culture negative for 48 hours is dispensed. Pasteurized donor milk bottles are labeledwith a batch number for tracking.The King’s Daughters Milk Bank is excited to expand the availability of this preciouslifesaving commodity to more preterm infants.

The Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU’s Adolescent Weight Loss SurgeryProgram at the Healthy Lifestyles Center has achieved accreditation as a ComprehensiveCenter of Excellence with Adolescent Qualifications through the Metabolic and BariatricSurgery Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP) that is overseen by the American Collegeof Surgeons and the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery. We are the onlycenter in the State of Virginia to have achieved this designation that uses rigorous standardsand extensive peer evaluation in accordance with nationally recognized metabolic andbariatric surgical standards. Through a multidisciplinary approach, our team of pediatricsurgeons, endocrinologists, psychologists, dieticians, exercise physiologist, nurse practitioners, research coordinator, and other pediatric specialists offers comprehensive treatmentfor overweight and obese adolescent patients. Our program offers a standard bariatric surgical option as well as a novel surgical approachthat does not remove a portion of the stomach, is reversible, and has been associated with very good initial results. Unfortunately, somemorbidly obese children do not respond to extensive lifestyle modification programs and have no other treatment option other than bariatric surgery. Fortunately, our Center of Excellence program can now fulfill that need for these children and their families from our region.www.virginiapediatrics.org

VIRGINIA PEDIATRICS6Eating Disorders & ObesityRachel Gow, PhD, LCPAssistant Professor, Department of PsychologyAlexis AplascaMelanie Been, MDEdmond Wickham, MDAssociate Professor of Internal Medicine and PediatricsDivision of Endocrinology and MetabolismDirector of Research, Comprehensive Pediatric Obesity Research and Treatment CenterChildren’s Hospital of Richmond at VCUirginia Commonwealth UniversityObjective: Discuss the prevalence of eating disordersamong adolescents across the weight spectrum. Reviewthe signs and symptoms and recall referral options.ACGME Competencies: Patient CareEating disorders can be present in childrenand adolescents at any weight. They aremost prevalent among adolescents ages 1318 years, with onset peaking during theseages. Lifetime prevalence estimates amongadolescents (ages 13-18 years) are 0.3% forand anorexia nervosa (AN), 0.9% for bulimianervosa (BN), and 1.6% for binge eatingdisorder (BED).1 Although full thresholdrates are around 1%, unhealthy attitudesand efforts to control weight, which maynot meet diagnostic criteria for AN, BNor BED, are common. By age 20, as manyas 12% of children and adolescents meetcriteria for eating disorder, not otherwisespecified (defined as subthreshold AN,BN, purging disorder, or BED).2 Moreover,over half of adolescent girls (55.3%) and aquarter (28.6%) of boys surveyed in ProjectEAT reported dieting in the past year.3 In thesame study, unhealthy weight control behaviors (fasting, eating very little food, usingfood substitutes, skipping meals, smokingcigarettes) were reported by 60.7% of girlsand 27.9% of boys. Extreme weight controlbehaviors such as purging, using diet pills orlaxatives, were reported by 12.6% of adolescent girls and 2.1% of boys.3 Binge eating(eating a large amount of food and feeling a“loss of control” while eating) was reportedby 9.9% of girls and 3% of boys.3 Additionally, body dissatisfaction is prevalent amongboth girls (35%) and boys (18%).4 Disorderedeating behaviors are associated with a pervasive course and several psychological andmedical comorbidities.Dieting and unhealthy weight controlpractices are problematic because they areassociated with several negative outcomes,including increased risk for weight gain,obesity, and eating disorders in adolescentsand young adults.5 Normal weight childrenwho engage in unhealthy weight controlbehaviors are at increased risk for both disordered eating and obesity in adolescenceand as young adults.5 Simalarly, adolescentswho engaged in unhealthy weight-controlbehaviors were at three times greater riskfor being overweight five years later.5 Theseadolescents were also at increased risk forbinge eating and compensatory behaviors(e.g., self-induced vomiting and use of dietpills, laxatives, and diuretics) five years later,compared with adolescents not using anyweight-control behaviors.Adolescent patients who are overweight orobese are at signiﬁcant risk of developingan eating disorder; however, their symptoms are frequently not recognized and gountreated. Compared to their normal weightpeers, overweight and obese adolescentsengage in more unhealthy weight controlbehaviors. More specifically, data fromProject EAT-I6 indicated that 50% of adolescent girls, 69% of overweight adolescentgirls, and 76% of obese adolescent girls usedunhealthy weight control behaviors. Overweight adolescents reported more bingeeating behaviors than their non-overweightpeers 6 and are at elevated risk for BED7 andBN8 as adults.Pediatric primary care providers are atthe frontline and have the opportunity toidentify eating pathology and provide criticalearly intervention. Indeed, early intervention with eating disorders is associated withthe best long-term outcomes. Regardless ofweight status, providers are encouraged tobe aware of signs of disordered eating. Forexample, if a patient loses weight rapidly,www.virginiapediatrics.orginquire about methods used. Is he or sheexercising excessively or skipping meals? Ingeneral, patients can be screened by askingabout eating patterns, meal skipping, feelings of loss of control or guilt with eating,comfort with their appearance, and teasing.Potentia
