Managing your weight isn’t just about losing weight - it’s about discovering the right lifestyle for you.  Hannibal Regional’s Weight Management Program is designed to help you reach your weight loss goals while giving you the tools to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

During an eight week period the Weight Management Program will help you develop and implement a plan to fit your weight loss needs and goals.  Your initial session will be one-on-one with a registered dietitian and the remaining seven sessions will be in a group environment.  

Upon completion of the program you can attend free weekly weight loss support groups which are led by a registered dietitian to help you stay on track.

If you feel that additional support is necessary, Dr. Purvi Parikh, who is board certified in Endocrinology and Obesity Medicine, is available to discuss further treatment options.
