Vick to present on new weight management program
Dr. Ken Vick, associate professor of surgery, will give a “brown bag lunch” presentation on UMMC’s new comprehensive weight management program Wednesday, Sept. 25, noon-1 p.m. in CW106 of the Classroom Wing. The program has both medical and surgical components and will serve a range of patients, from those who may periodically struggle to maintain a healthy weight to morbidly obese individuals who are candidates for surgical intervention. The program is affiliated with UMMC’s Mississippi Center for Obesity Research. Vick is medical director of the program and Dr. Angela Subauste, assistant professor of medicine, is overseeing medical approaches to weight management. Healthy drinks and snacks will be provided at the event.
