“The United States is dealing with a major healthcare crisis as 198 million individuals are overweight,” Conley stressed. “Vtrim differs from other weight loss programs since we are totally online; our participants have frequent online consultation with their facilitators, registered dietitians, and interact with their groups. As a result, participants have a higher average weight loss than individuals on the more well-known weight loss programs.”
With more than 15 years of online digital leadership experience, Eggert brings broad expertise in digital operations, technical implementation and online engagement tools, as well as digital licensing and content syndication in the food, health and wellness industries. Previously, she was Executive Producer and Senior Digital Strategist for EatingWell Media Group.
