Hi, My name is Dr Eric Westman, Co Founder of Adapt Your Life and Chief Medical Officer and Co Founder of Heal Clinics. , I am also the associate Professor of Medicine at Duke University Health System and Director of the Duke Lifestyle Medical Clinic.
I am the Past President of the Obesity Medicine Association and a Fellow of the Obesity Society. In 2010, I was named the Obesity Medicine Association’s “Bariatrician of the Year” for my work in advancing the field of obesity medicine as well as the Society. I am also a recipient of the Society’s Steelman-Seim Educator Award for advancing the cause of health care through education and teaching. I Graduated from Stanford University (A.B.), University of Wisconsin (M.D.), University of Kentucky, and Duke University (M.H.S.), am board certified in Internal Medicine and Obesity Medicine, and have a Master’s Degree in clinical research, with over 90 peer-reviewed publications to my name.
I have combined these 15 years of clinical research and care to deliver an extremely high success rate for my patients through theoretical and practical experience, I have dedicated my life to helping patients with various medical conditions such as Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes, Pre Diabetes, Metabolic Syndrome, Obesity, Hypertension, and many others through diet and lifestyle choices. I believe that using standard medical protocols often treat the symptom and not the cause.
As with any diet or lifestyle program, medical supervision is recommended. Members on the Adapt Program or Adapt Your Life Website will not be under the medical care of Dr. Westman or the Adapt Your Life support staff. The Adapt Program is not intended to replace the members’ medical doctor. Members who wish to participate in this program must be monitored by their own physician.
The Adapt Program has been carefully designed to help and assist you to track your individual progress and goals.
We are excited to assist and guide you on your journey.
Dr Eric Westman
