"I started the weight management program at Center for Weight and Wellness just before my 60th birthday. Weight has been an issue much of my life.

This program has helped with weight loss, but more importantly the support and education I have received has been so helpful.

The program can be customized to fit your individual needs The staff of dietitians, doctors, psychologists, and exercise physiologists are very helpful in helping you succeed.

One the things I really liked about the program is that even though the goal is weight loss, the staff is very supportive of each person's journey. The weekly groups are so helpful! I am so glad I joined. Now I am attending a weekly Masters Group."
