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 SansumClinic.org/Healthy-Weight, 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.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
