    “Being both a bariatric patient and a professional counselor, the Bariatric Coaching Skills Class taught me the rudimentary skills I need to be the best that I can be, personally and professionally. I highly recommend the class to anyone who is
    interested in the coaching profession and working with bariatric patients. You will walk away from the experience changed for the better both as a person and as a professional.”
