Healthy Living MOVE! Program 

Nutrition Services

Our dietitians can put you on the path to learning how foods can help prevent or control your chronic diseases. We offer in-patient services, and outpatient nutrition education at each of our clinics including diabetes education group classes and MOVE! weight management.  

MOVE!®

MOVE!® is a national weight management program designed by the VA National Center for Health Promotion and Disease Prevention (NCP), a part of the Office of Patient Care Services, to help Veterans lose weight, keep it off and improve their health.

The MOVE!® Program offers several options for treatment. All options emphasize a lifestyle approach to weight loss that is very patient centered. We help and encourage patients to incorporate healthy lifestyle changes focused on better nutrition and fitness while addressing their individual likes and dislikes. One size doesn't fit all!

Patients are offered follow up and monitoring as they desire. We'd like to share with you some additional details about the options for treatment we offer through Marion VA Medical Center.

*A consult is required from your medical provider for participation in any aspect of the program.
