Alissa Kruger Graduates from the Advanced Curriculum Fellowship Program (ACFP)

Our very own Alissa Kruger, ARNP, NP-C, who helps lead our Medical Weight Loss program, has recently graduated from the Obesity Medicine Association® (OMA) Advanced Curriculum Fellowship Program. She is the only provider in Iowa to have completed this program and the only Nurse Practitioner in the United States to achieve this honor. Her commitment to her profession and our patients is outstanding as achieving this honor was no small feat.

The OMA Advanced Curriculum Fellowship Program prepares healthcare providers to better treat patients affected by obesity and its associated conditions through completion of 500 hours of obesity-specific continuing medical education over a three-year period. Specific education sessions include, diet and nutrition; behavior modification techniques; exercise prescription; pharmacotherapy; pathophysiology of glucose intolerance, metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes, among other topics.

Congratulations to Alissa for this great achievement! To read more about this program, you can visit their website at
