“This program was taught by seasoned professionals, expert RDNs, in the specialty of weight management. I know - because I have practiced in this area for more than 20 years, reading the science, following the experts and guiding patients through behavior change. I've had the amazing opportunity to work in multi-disciplinary weight management programs, develop programs and coordinate pharmaceutical studies on EVERY drug for obesity treatment that has "come down the pike" over the last 20 - 25 years. Over the years, my experience in obesity has been rich. Yet, I learned more from faculty that taught this certification course; it was enriching. Thank you.”
