Specialized Programs for Weight Loss 

Lifespan Weight Loss Services also offers specialized programs:

  • The Healthy Way Program at the Lifespan Lifestyle Medicine Center takes an approach that does not involve traditional restrictive dieting. Although weight is monitored, we do not focus on a number, but rather on achieving a healthy lifestyle and developing a positive relationship with food.  
  • Lifespan’s Nutrition Services provides nutrition counseling on an individual, outpatient basis by registered dietitians, licensed by the State of Rhode Island. They are trained in all areas of nutrition and provide nutrition counseling to help prevent or control many conditions, including obesity and weight management issues. 
  • The Nutrition Teaching Center at Hasbro Children’s Hospital provides customized nutrition education, nutrition counseling, and personalized support to patients’ parents and caregivers. Our staff of pediatric registered, licensed dietitians can help optimize a child’s nutrition, which can improve medical outcomes and health. 
  • Our Adolescent Weight Management Program called (HEALTH) Healthy Eating Active Living Through Hasbro helps adolescents and families develop healthier lifestyles and gain control over their weight.
