The Abington Weight Management Center is affiliated with HMR (Health Management Resources, Boston), the nation’s leading provider of medically supervised weight management programs. Since 1983, HMR programs have helped more than one million people lose weight while learning healthier lifestyle skills.
We believe that successful weight management is a matter of learning and practicing new skills – not willpower. We focus on teaching new skills that will improve both weight management and overall health. HMR is not a deprivation diet. Our goal is to have patients feel full and satisfied while they are losing weight through the use of meal replacements.
