Weight management program

A 3-6 month program focused on diet, lifestyle, and peer support.

Program Components

Initial Consultation

First, an individual consultation with the medical director of integrative medicine will be scheduled. The doctor will review your health history and discuss your sleep habits, nutrition habits, stress management, and social support.

Group Sessions

Following the initial consultation, participants will enroll in a group weight management program. Group sessions will focus on healthy living strategies and learning from others going through a similar experience. Participants will be able to discuss their questions and goals and share stories with other group members.

A nutritionist will lead sessions about changing your relationship with food and strategies for healthy eating such as incorporating healthy foods into daily life, making healthy recipes on a budget, spotting unhealthy ingredients that lead to weight gain, and finding satisfying and healthy snacks.

The medical director will also visit the group to record vital signs and food intake for insurance purposes.
