At the Charter Medical Center, I and my staff put a lot of emphasis on health maintenance and disease prevention rather than just giving medications to treat diseases when they have already occurred. Maintainng an optimal body weight to keep your BMI (Body Mass Index) in the normal range between 19 to 24, is a goal we preach to all our adult patients. All evidence points to the fact that the prevention of obesity decreases the incidence of diabetes, heart disease, cancer and reduced life span in both males and females.
The Charter Weight Loss Center is dedicated to making sure that those who are overweight (BMI above 24) or obese (BMI abobe 29) have a patient-oriented plan to guide them into reaching their goal. Our Business Director, Mrs Kim Olusanya is a role model and champion in this regard, having lost 150 lb using the same methods we preach.
