Nutrition is the cornerstone of health. It affects many different disease conditions, such as cancer, diabetes, autoimmune disorders, dementia, and heart disease, as well as overall quality of life. As a leader in research, patient care, and education, the UCLA Center for Human Nutrition is at the forefront, both locally and nationally, of building awareness of the impact nutrition has on a person’s health.
The UCLA Medical Weight Management Program (formerly known as RFO) is a medically-supervised program involving a multidisciplinary team of providers and a personalized approach to long-term weight management.
At UCLA there are advanced surgical and nonsurgical options for weight management.
