The Weight Management Program at Washington University School of Medicine is dedicated to the care of individuals with overweight and obesity. By applying the most current methods, the program helps participants manage their weight and reduce the medical risks associated with excess weight. Participants in the Weight Management Program represent a range of lifestyles, ages and careers, including healthcare workers, business professionals, teachers, engineers, mechanics, retirees and students. Managing your weight successfully is a lifelong process, and our participants share a desire to find more enjoyment in life through healthy weight management.

The Weight Management Program at Washington University School of Medicine offers a multidisciplinary approach to help you achieve your goals.

Some very common reasons why individuals join our program include:

  • A history of multiple attempts at losing weight
  • Medical complications requiring weight loss
  • Weight-induced limitations in physical activity
  • A desire to implement enduring lifestyle changes to maintain a healthy weight
