Melissa Soellner, Memorial Hospital's Dietitian is proud to introduce a new, FREE Weight Loss Group program beginning July 2019. The program provides structure, support and accountability to those looking to lose weight. Those who participate in the program will be supplied with nutrition and activity action plans to help them reach their goals.
Anyone interested in the program are invited to attend a free introductory class on one of the following dates/times:

All introductory meetings will take place at Memorial Hospital. Locations in the hospital may vary, but there will be signs posted to direct you to the right room.
The annual program follows the CDC Prediabetes Curriculum and will include 1 meeting a week for the first 16 weeks (August-November), 2 meetings a month for the next two months (December-January), and then 1 meeting a month for the last 6 months (February-June). Those who commit to the program will be required to attend 50% of the classes (make-up classes will be available). Meetings will last approximately 1 hour and will be held in Chester, IL. Locations may vary and participants will be informed of locations prior to each meeting.
