What People Are Saying:

Dr. Francavilla poured out her heart into creating this valuable content. I completed my obesity medicine training last year out of an interest to provide comprehensive and holistic medical care for my community, but I become even more empowered after taking your course because you made it applicable and broke all the modules down to the nitty-gritty. Your one in one interaction with patients demonstrating what I learned in the modules was the icing on the cake. Your tool kit materials were straightforward to follow and apply in the clinical setting. I am truly appreciative that you took the time to build this excellent and all-inclusive course. Thank you.

I am thoroughly enjoying the course!! The Toolkit is extensive and will be very helpful in practice. You've done a lot of work through the years. Thank you for sharing it with others! As I go through your course, my confidence grows that I can actually do this and be successful. The majority of OM is counseling/behavior modification, and that was what I enjoyed most at my prior job. Your style makes sense to me, and the handouts will be utilized with each patient. I'm still in the process of setting up the business (YUCK!!), and I wasn't sure how I would operate the clinical program, but your course has provided the answer! Thank you!!
