Anyone who has tried to lose weight knows that not only is it hard to do, but it’s even more difficult to maintain the lower weight once it has been reached. It is also well documented that being overweight or obese is associated with a host of serious chronic diseases such a heart problems, diabetes, breathing problems and sleep disorders.

With these facts in mind, Beebe Medical Center is introducing a medically sophisticated, weight loss program that includes minimally invasive surgery combined with diet and behavior modification, personal training and nutritional instruction. The goal is to help people learn how to improve their health so that they can enjoy life and avoid suffering the painful and often depressing effects of chronic disease.

On Wednesday, June 30, Beebe Medical Center will host a free seminar to introduce this weight-loss program. Speaking will be Dr. Michael Sofronski and Dr. Daniel McCullough, two surgeons who are experienced in bariatric surgery and are strong advocates of exercise and healthy lifestyles. The surgeons will discuss treatment options, their benefits and risks, and answer questions.

The event will take place at 6:30 p.m. at the McCurry Conference Center at the Beebe Health Campus on John J. Williams Highway in Rehoboth Beach. To register, please call Beebe Medical Center at (302) 645-3221. Registration is free but required.

Beebe Medical Center is a not-for-profit community medical center with a charitable mission to encourage healthy living, prevent illness, and restore optimal health with the people residing, working, or visiting in the communities we serve. For more information, please visit us online at
