Abstract:

Obesity is a growing problem both nationally and in the Military Health System. While the existing literature reflects an abundance of controlled trials demonstrating the efficacy of a broad array of weight management interventions, there is relatively little research concerning how to increase the utilization of such programs. The present study seeks to enhance readiness to engage with existing weight management services through patient exposure to a consolidated services briefing delivered in a motivational style.
