Emmi Programs

At the Houston Methodist Weight Management Center, we believe that you, the patient, are the most important member of your health care team. That is why we offer these free programs for your education and personal application on your weight loss journey.
 
Using voice and animation, Emmi® programs help you prepare for your upcoming procedure by answering frequently asked questions. Each program takes about 20 minutes to watch from the comfort of your own home or any place with internet access. You can view the programs as often as you like and can even share them with friends or family members. As you watch the programs, note any questions to bring with you to your next appointment with our weight management specialists.
