“I am deeply concerned that one third of Missourians are obese. Obesity is a disease, not due to weakness, laziness or poor moralcharacter but related to heredity, inexpensive high calorie foods and our mechanized society where it is not necessary for us to move much, and many other cultural and medi- cal factors. Obesity causes many other diseases in our lives that sicken or kill us. Obesity is tough to reverse and I want to help guide patients on a path to a healthier weight.”
“As a nurse practitioner preven- tative health is my main focus. Obesity is linked to many chronic disabling diseases like diabetes, heart disease, and some cancers as well as depression and chronic pain. Through education and sup- port assisting with weight loss can be stimulus for a healthy more productive happier life. I look forward to helping my patients achieve their weight loss goals.”
“I am excited to be working in partnership with my patients to treat an important underly- ing process that can cause many serious diseases: obesity. I hope to use new scientific knowledge to bring hope to people suffering from weight issues. Working with new innovations in diet, physical activity, cognitive and behavioral methods, medicines, and referrals for surgical procedures when ap- propriate, I expect to help my pa- tients find lasting success in treat- ing their weight problem and its potential medical consequences.”
