Prof. Dr. Renate Oberhoffer-Fritz, Dean of the Department of Sport and Health Sciences and head of the Chair of Preventive Pediatrics, and PD Dr. Annette Wacker-Gussmann, Research Associate at the Chair of Preventive Pediatrics, are guest editors of the special issue "Cardiovascular Risk Factors in Childhood and Adolescence" of the "Journal of Clinical Medicine". The journal is an international, peer-reviewed, semi-monthly journal published by the Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI). It has an impact factor of 4.241.

The special issue focuses on studies of cardiovascular risk factors in childhood and adolescence and the impact of related prevention programs across the lifespan.

"Cardiovascular risk factors in childhood and adolescence are increasing dramatically due to sociodemographic changes as well as the COVID-19 pandemic," explains Prof. Oberhoffer-Fritz. "They will lead to major health problems in the next generation. High-risk pregnancies, fetal programming, obesity, arterial hypertension, lifestyle factors such as physical activity, sedentary behavior, diet, and even social problems affect children's health and health care and need to be addressed in effective prevention strategies."

Manuscripts can be submitted online through MDPI's portal until Nov. 30, 2021. All papers will undergo the usual peer-review process and be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published in the journal on a rolling basis and listed together on the special issue website.

Submissions may include research articles, review articles, and short communications. Submitted essays must not have been previously published, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference papers).
