Are you interested in losing a few pounds? Want help?

Move! may be the program for you!

A team of health care providers is ready to help you lose weight and keep it off.  Focus on health and wellness through healthy eating, physical activity and behavior change.  Best of all, it's free! Did you know, that research studies show losing as little as 5-10% of your current body weight lowers your risk of heart disease, hypertension, type 2 diabetes, and certain types of cancer?

Watch one Veterans three month journey of weight loss and his thoughts about the Portland VA MOVE! Program.
