The next Backus Weight Loss and Wellness Program will be Aug. 23–Dec. 20.

The comprehensive program includes education and support from registered dietitians, physical therapists and behavioral health specialists.  Participants receive a one-on-one consult with a dietitian prior to the group sessions, and have access to a wide range of Backus licensed healthcare professionals to help them lose the weight they’ve wanted to shed for years.
