San Francisco, May 16, 2013

JumpstartMD, the Bay Area’s largest non-surgical, medical weight loss program, recently launched a discounted program for college students. The program was developed to assist those young adults struggling with weight gain and lack of nutritional knowledge, enabling them to establish a foundational understanding of how to lose excess weight and remain within a healthy weight range long-term. The discount developed as a direct assist for these students without employment and restricted by limited financial resources.

“In college you are in a sense jumping into the pool of adulthood. No more home-cooked meals, no more parent-prepared lunches. Young adults are somewhat catapulted into land where they can eat whatever they want, whenever they want – and furthermore, alcohol consumption is often newly introduced into their lifestyle. Thus the “freshman 15” has become a cultural norm. We however see this as an age-group with huge potential. Our goal is to get healthy nutritional habits developed and solidified early on, creating a healthier future adult population,” says Dr. Conrad Lai, JumpstartMD Co-founder and COO.

The program launched in May and due to its instant success, looks to be a permanent offering for young adults.
