“We understand that these are challenging economic times for so many people,” said Alberta Lipiniski, nursing supervisor of Medical Weight Loss Clinic. “We want to help provide the tools and support to unemployed individuals to help them stay healthy as they look for a job.”
Medical Weight Loss Clinic is offering up to 30 pounds of weight loss with no purchase necessary. Individuals interested in taking advantage of this free offer can contact MWLC beginning November 12 at 800-GET-SLIM to schedule an appointment at a clinic in their area and begin a personalized weight loss program.
“Our goal is to provide support to our neighbors and help them stay in control of their weight and health while they are facing the stress of finding new work,” added Lipiniski.
Medical Weight Loss Clinic is making this offer available to the first 25 unemployed workers to schedule appointments at each of its 34 clinics throughout Michigan and northern Ohio—a total of 850 people who can benefit from this offer. If demand should exceed available clinic resources for the day, individuals will be offered an appointment at a nearby clinic.
Supervised by board certified physicians, Medical Weight Loss Clinic programs use regular grocery store food and are customized based upon a patient’s medical profile. Each patient receives one-on-one support from MWLC professionals with the focus of the weight loss program to help patients develop healthy and satisfying eating habits. This year alone, Medical Weight Loss Clinic patients will lose in excess of two million pounds.
Individuals wanting to participate in this Medical Weight Loss Clinic offer should bring a valid state-issued identification and a state-issued unemployment benefits enrollment confirmation to their first scheduled appointment at Medical Weight Loss Clinic. Participants who secure employment after beginning the free Medical Weight Loss Clinic program will remain eligible for the offer of up to 30 pounds of weight loss with no purchase necessary.
