The Quality Spotlight Award for this month goes to Courtney Johnson, MS, RD, LDN, for her work with the Medical Weight Management Clinic patients.

Through nutrition education, the goal is for 65% of patients to lose two pounds or more a month.  Courtney’s patients have met this goal for three consecutive months.

This is important because weight loss is likely to produce health benefits, such as improvements in blood pressure, blood cholesterol  and blood sugar, and increase overall quality of life.
