For more than 20 years, the Ohio State Weight Management Program results have consistently ranked above the National Institutes of Health expected weight loss average. Our success is based on offering a complete wellness and total health approach to weight management.

Weight loss and a healthier lifestyle will not only help you feel better, but can help prevent chronic health conditions, such as heart disease and diabetes, and prevent complications associated with chronic health conditions. We provide you with education on all aspects of attaining a healthier lifestyle – nutrition, behavior change and exercise.

Patient Success Story - 'The Sisterhood'

Women support each other’s weight loss goalsTamaris, Erin, Tricia and Bridget met during the Living Well class and formed a lasting friendship. “We’ve been friends ever since and each other’s biggest supporters,” says Bridget. The quartet keeps in touch via social media and in person, helping each other and holding themselves accountable for their newly earned health. “I know we’ll all be able to keep the weight off and continue the journey of life in our healthy bodies because of the great support and guidance we’ve received from OSU and from the friendship the four of us have created,” says Erin. “It’s become a sisterhood that none of us expected, but we are lucky to have found.”
