Intensive Behavioral Therapy for Obesity
Lose the Weight – and Boost Your Well-Being
If excess weight is taking a toll on your health, turn to Kirby Medical
Center for help. Our new wellness program, Intensive Behavioral Therapy
for Obesity, is specifically designed for individuals with a BMI of 30
or higher – offering ongoing counseling and support to help program
participants meet their weight-loss goals.
How does the program work?
Over the course of one year, participants will meet up to 22 times with
a registered dietitian (for approximately 15 minutes each session) to
briefly review goals, progress, and tips. Appointments will be offered
based on the following schedule:
Month 1: Meet once per week.
Months 2-6: Meet every two weeks.
Remaining Months: Meet monthly (so long as at least 6.6 pounds were lost in the first six months).
(Please note: This program is covered by Medicare.)
