Obesity affects approximately 70 million Americans. It is a complex metabolic disease that occurs as a result of both our genetic make-up and environmental forces. In simple terms, obesity arises from the consumption of too many calories relative to the amount of energy expended.

As a person's Body Mass Index (BMI) rises above 25, so does the risk of diseases, including type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and some cancers. 

The Weight Management Program at the University of Michigan was created to identify strategies that will result in long-term weight management for obese individuals, utilizing the latest research and clinical strategies. We are dedicated to educating, motivating, and empowering individuals to make healthy lifestyle choices.
