Recognizing health professional training programs that are ahead of the curve in providing nutrition, physical activity and obesity counseling education to their students.






Did You Know?

 

Over 2/3 
of Americans are overweight or have obesity.

 

The U.S. spends
$305,100,000,000 annually on obesity-related disease. 


 

Fewer than 30% of the medical schools are meeting the minimum number of hours recommended by the National Academy of Sciences.

 

Less than 1/4
of physicians feel they received adequate training in counseling patients on diet or physical activity.


 

Many of America’s health care professionals are not prepared to consistently deliver effective counseling on maintaining a healthy weight, diet, and physical activity level, despite staggering rates of obesity and related chronic diseases. 

 

You are helping to change that. We want to celebrate you.
