Event Details

April 21st, 2014 we are offering a very Special Acknowledgement to to our Diamond Sponsor NutriMedicos Dr. Estella Hernandez Located 1719 W. 18th Street | 312.929.2927.

Dr. Estella Hernandez began her medical career not too far from the office location, attending the UIC College of Medicine from 1998-2002. From there, she went on to complete her residency at the Illinois Masonic Medical Center and graduated in 2006. Not only did she complete her training with a medical degree and license in hand, but also carrying 50 pounds of extra weight! She began working in a south side community clinic and soon realized that in order to properly counsel her patients on treatment of their chronic diseases, she need to do something about her own weight issues. She commenced her weight loss journey by walking/running for exercise and watching her sugar/fat intake and has gradually made lifestyles changes to lose a total of 40 pounds to date. Dr. Hernandez was proud of her weight loss accomplishment but felt that she did not have enough resources or support to help her patients do the same. It was at this time that she searched online and found the American Society of Bariatric Physicians, the organization for medical weight loss specialists. Dr. Hernandez attended her first ASBP conference in April 2010 and heard stories of patients being able to stop their medications and change their lives by weight loss. Since then, she knew she had found her calling and has dedicated her life to combating this disease.

She began her battle by creating and implementing the Paso a Paso weight loss program at the Esperanza Health Center in Pilsen where she helped nearly 100 patients lose weight and resolve their medical conditions such as prediabetes, high cholesterol, fatty liver, etc. She has recently participated in a bariatric medicine fellowship offered by the ASBP and has attended many other their conferences throughout the nation.
