NKY Health’s OFF program offers regular, free support group sessions and an annual 12-week OFF program for weight management.

Free OFF Support Group Sessions

Learn how to lose and manage your weight through long term lifestyle changes of healthy food choices, eating habits and regular exercise. Come as needed for accountability, support, motivation, knowledge and for community by connecting with others on the same journey!

Support Sessions are once per month, typically on the 2nd or 3rd Monday of the month from 6:00pm to 7:30pm in Florence or Erlanger.

12-Week OFF Program

The OFF program is a weight loss program for people focused on changing lifestyle habits.

The 12-week OFF weight-control program is taught by Registered Dietitians from the Health Department. It’s based on the book Outsmarting the Female Fat Cell by Debra Waterhouse and consists of consecutive weekly sessions focusing on a natural way of eating that works for your body, not against it.

OFF is typically offered once each year.

The class is open to people  who live or work in Boone, Campbell, Grant and Kenton Counties. Cost for the class is $25, payable at the first session.
