Determining what works and what doesn’t when it comes to weight loss is one of the more perplexing health mysteries of the new millennium. To help distinguish fact from fiction, Mark DelBello, MD, FACP, CDE, will present “Losing Weight: Slow and Steady Wins,” on June 23 at 6 p.m. This informative talk will take place at the Dupont Resource Center, 2514 E. Dupont Road, suite 210.
Dr. DelBello, a board-certified internal medicine and obesity medicine specialist, will share his insight into the health benefits of slow, controlled weight loss. More than 60 diseases — including diabetes and high blood pressure — and 12 types of cancer can be attributed to obesity. It is possible to reverse the trend today and reap the long-term benefits of weight loss.
Light refreshments will be served. Preregistration is requested. RSVP online by June 18 at LutheranHealth.net/TuesdayTalks. Call the Dupont Resource Center at 416-3009 for additional information.
