January Is Healthy Weight Month at Sansum Clinic

Source: Liz Baker for Sansum Clinic

Two-thirds of Americans are considered overweight or obese, while one-third of school-age children are overweight or obese.

Obesity is the driving factor of so many chronic conditions — heart disease, diabetes and cancer — that greatly affect quality of life. Many of the health problems associated with obesity can be avoided by maintaining a healthy weight.

January is Healthy Weight Month at Sansum Clinic. We are here to encourage our patients and the community to reach and maintain a healthy weight.

Sansum Clinic offers a broad range of options and programs for achieving a healthy lifestyle no matter your weight-loss goals. From group classes and health education to the Doctor’s Weight Management Program and bariatric surgery, Sansum Clinic has something for everyone.

Visit, your online resource for:

» Advice from our medical specialists on what you should know if you are overweight.

» Links to services and programs designed to help you maintain a healthy weight, including our Doctor’s Weight Management Program.

» Easy fitness tips from our physical therapists to get you moving.

» Healthy recipes from our registered dieticians.

» Information regarding our bariatric surgery program.

You can also visit the Health Resource Center at 215 Pesetas Lane in Santa Barbara, or call 805.681.7672.
