About Us

Partners for a Healthier Weight

Losing weight can often be hard, but keeping it off can be even harder. Too often during weight loss attempts, important factors that impact your weight and health are ignored, which may lead to weight regain, feelings of failure, and other health problems. Eat less; move more is not the answer.

Partners for Healthier Weight (PfHW) understands the complexity of obesity and recognizes the need for comprehensive, multidisciplinary, and evidence-based obesity management treatment. PfHW is the first medically and psychologically focused obesity management centre in Atlantic Canada. Our multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals includes psychologists, physicians, dietitians, nurses, and physiotherapists.
