OPTIFAST Informational Session

Adult Mother & Daughter

As part of our Comprehensive Weight Management Program, we use an 800-calorie-per-day liquid product called OPTIFAST® – a more rapid, yet medically safe way of losing weight that gives a sense of accomplishment without compromising long-term weight loss.

If you're interested in learning more about the liquid diet, come to our free OPTIFAST Informational Session to review the weight management programs we offer.

  • Why we use such a drastic approach
  • Need for medical monitoring and what that means
  • Weight loss expectations
  • Phases of the program and how someone could expect to move through it
  • Program cost
  • Days and times of group sessions
  • Review of the product we use
  • How to take the next step

The Optifast informational session is free of charge.

Parking at Jefferson

There are several parking lots in the area that you can enter either on Walnut Street or on 9th Street. There is a lot in the Neuroscience Hospital building across the street which offers easy access to Walnut Towers. You would turn left into this lot from 9th Street, just north of Locust Street. You may get your parking ticket validated for discount parking in the lobby of the building.

Registration Instructions:

In-person sessions are cancelled at this time.

Jefferson, like many other health systems, universities and businesses is taking steps to ensure the health and safety of its community. We apologize for the inconvenience.

We are planning on holding these in-person sessions in May. Until then, if you are interested in learning more, please call 215-955-1925 and one of our representatives will call to schedule a phone session for you.
