Albert J. Stunkard Weight Management Program
Our philosophy is simple and straightforward - overweight individuals should be treated compassionately and professionally. Excess weight is a complex problem that affects many aspects of an individual’s health and quality of life. We believe that the causes of weight gain are multi-faceted and that overweight individuals need and deserve a weight loss program tailored to their needs. The multidisciplinary treatment program at the Stunkard Weight Management Program is dedicated to providing the highest level of care to overweight individuals in a setting of clinical and research excellence.
