As children return to the classroom this fall, the Medical Weight Loss Clinic at Paris Community Hospital is offering all area school employees an incentive to reassess their own health.
A special “Back to School, Back to You” promotion allows teachers and all other school employees to participate in the weight loss program at a reduced rate. Now through October 31, participants receive 30 percent off the normal $150 consultation fee. If a participant brings a friend into the program, each of them will receive half off the consultation fee, or $75 each.
The Medical Weight Loss Clinic is located in the Paris Family Medical Center. The program utilizes a medically-supervised, scientifically based approach, called Ideal Protein, which promotes fat loss while supporting muscle mass. This is achieved through intaking an optimal level of protein and reducing fats and sugars.
Ideal Protein is a four-phase program featuring one-on-one coaching and balanced lifestyle education to help maintain results after dieting. The program emphasizes the health benefits that can be realized through weight loss.
Free informational sessions regarding the Medical Weight Loss Clinic take place the third Tuesday of each month at 5:30 pm in the Paris Family Medical Center. These events are open to the public and include taste testing of actual foods used in the weight loss program and a question-and-answer session with program representatives.
The Medical Weight Loss Clinic opened in early 2015 and is led by Crystal White, family nurse practitioner/program manager, and her staff. For more information about the clinic, call 217-465-2606, Ext. 710 or visit ParisCommunityHospital.com/WeightLoss.
