To help people living with Obesity, we strive to help them achieve better health both mental and physical. We work to minimize negative health caused by excess body weight. Teaching each patient that their weight DOES NOT represent who they are or represent inadequacy of character, intellect or motivation.
To promote and teach our community that obesity is a disease, not a behavior problem, best treated with a holistic approach including healthy nutrition, healthy behaviors, scientifically proven medicines and clear understanding of multiple psychologic issues and needs of living as a large person in a fat bias world.
