  • Weight Management
    Center for Medical Weight Loss and Metabolic Control

    The Rowan Medicine Department of Family Medicine took an urgent health care need that is integrally reflected in both the Healthy 2010 and Healthy 2020 reports, and created innovative clinical and academic programs to respond to the growing problem of obesity. While the initial focus was to develop clinical approaches to overweight and obesity, the program scope has since expanded to address co-morbid medical conditions, including metabolic control. The approach is comprehensive, recognizing the significant role played by lifestyle factors.
