Darius Cureton, a professor at Winston Salem State, struggled with weight loss his entire life. He tried many different diet options, but nothing worked.
His primary care physician recommended he considers weight loss surgery and referred him to the Weight Management Center at Wake Forest Baptist Health. Darius says, “The surgery gave me the push I needed to maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle.” More than two years post surgery he has lost more than 100 pounds.
He has become an advocate for the program and gives testimonials at the surgical weight loss seminars.
