San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) May 20, 2013
JumpstartMD, the Bay Area’s largest non-surgical medical weight loss program, has launched the industry’s first discount program for college students. Developed to assist young adults struggling against weight gain due to poor nutritional knowledge and notoriously unhealthy – and plentiful – food and drink options on campus, JumpstartMD’s 2013 “Summer Camp” is designed to reverse college weight gain, while arming returning students for a more Fall semester ahead. The company is offering a reduced monthly fee under this special program, ($299 vs. $360), to enable more cash-strapped co-eds to get healthy this year.
“In college you are catapulted into independence – for better or worse. No more home-cooked meals or prepared lunches. Young adults must confront the sudden ability to eat virtually whatever they want, whenever they want for the first time. Furthermore, alcohol is newly introduced for many, and can derail these young people if they’re unprepared,” says Dr. Conrad Lai, JumpstartMD Co-founder and COO. “Thus the “Freshman 15” (or more often 40 these days) has become a cultural norm. At JumpstartMD we want to help start these young people off on a more navigable nutritional path so they can establish healthier habits and strategies early on, to avoid what has become an epidemic progression toward overweight, obesity and their associated health risks.”
The program launched May 1st for college-aged students 18-25 returning home for Summer Break and for those attending nearby universities. Students can enroll by calling 1-855-Jumpstart, and simply need to bring a student ID (or acceptance letter for college-bound freshmen), to their first visit to qualify for this special rate and program curriculum.
