Dr. Jennifer Ashton, OB/GYN

” I wish that physicians and the lay public alike understood that obesity is not as simple as ‘eating less and moving more.’ It was only in studying for certification that I learned about principles like the ‘set-point theory’ or the ‘defense of fatness’ in which the body seeks to return to its heaviest weight even IF significant weight loss is achieved. “

Dr. Kaya Jones Oyejide, Family Medicine

“As a family physician, I use my obesity medicine training every day. This includes, but is not limited to, motivational interviewing to help a patient make lifestyle changes, or more detailed recommendations for diet, exercise and medications.”
