The University of Nevada School of Medicine's Wellness and Weight Management Center has moved a few hundred yards north to a newer, larger clinical space on the second floor of the Center for Molecular Medicine on the University of Nevada, Reno campus.
"This new facility reflects the importance of our Wellness and Weight Management program to its current and future patients," said Evan Klass, M.D., medical director of the center and a School of Medicine endocrinologist.
"This move also allows us to co-locate the Division of Endocrinology and Diabetes into that same space to complement the services of the Wellness Center. The two programs work hand-in-glove to address healthy lifestyle choices and medical care for patients," he added.
The Wellness and Weight Management Center incorporates an interdisciplinary approach to developing individual lifelong skills to help lose and maintain weight. The team of internists, nurses and registered dietitians work together to assess weight loss methods that will be most beneficial for patients with the goal of guiding patients towards leading a healthy lifestyle and the prevention or control obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes and heart disease.
The Wellness and Weight Management Center is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Call 775-784-4474 to inquire about services or to make an appointment.
