At CBNH, a multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals focuses on promoting health and wellness in addition to managing and preventing acute and chronic illness. “We work with patients and primary and specialized healthcare professionals to promote the psychological, behavioral and nutritional changes needed to manage and reduce the risk of complications associated with medical conditions,” said Joshua Hrabosky, PsD, the center’s manager.
Services include behavioral therapy to address the psychological, emotional and behavioral symptoms that contribute to illness; nutritional counseling to prevent or treat medical problems; weight management; and diabetes education and management. CBNH experts will continue collaborating with Greenwich Hospital’s bariatric surgery team to provide services and support patients who have undergone or are planning to have weight loss surgery.
