Program Overview

kim gudzuneThe Johns Hopkins Healthful Eating, Activity & Weight Program focuses on working with patients to make long-term lifestyle changes to prevent chronic disease and improve their health. We combine scientifically proven strategies with a compassionate and supportive approach to deliver high-quality care for women and men.

Our program uses a variety of evidence-based tools to help achieve these goals including group and one-on-one behavioral counseling to promote a healthful diet and physical activity, meal replacements, psychological services including cognitive behavioral therapy, and eligibility for bariatric procedures including surgery. Medication management, including the prescription of anti-obesity or other medications, may also be a part of the treatment plan.
