Kids Health and Wellness Program, YoMedics™ Expands New Children’s Weight Loss Pilot Program to Five States

Heather Quillen and Lisa R. Ramey, D.O., co-founders of YoMedics™, continue to see great progress with their new pilot program to help fight obesity in children, called Kids Journey to YoPower for Life.

Orlando, Fla. – February 12, 2009 – Heather Quillen and Lisa R. Ramey, D.O., co-founders of YoMedics™ and the corresponding website, are currently testing a  pilot program aimed at childhood weight management, and promoting an overall healthy lifestyle for children of all ages.  The program is called Kids Journey to YoPower for Life.   

After superior success within the first weeks of the program, Ms. Quillen and Dr. Ramey have expanded the program to 3 additional states. Kids Journey to YoPower for Life is now involving participants in Florida, New Mexico, Nevada, Utah, and New Jersey.  In addition to the great early results of the program, Quillen and Ramey said they are extremely excited to see increased progress as more and more participants are taking place.  During the first week, the children lost from one half pound to four pounds, and no children gained weight. 

Dr. Lisa Ramey, D.O. said, “The exciting news is that the kids are really loving the program and seeing real progress.  This is not a diet.  It is a healthy lifestyle program that gives kids the knowledge and tools to make better, healthier choices for a lifetime! 

The pilot program will help the YoMedics™ team determine areas of the program that need changing in order to better serve the participants. The recently launched website,, has also proven to be an invaluable source for parents to help deal with the health of our children.  Dr. Lisa Ramey, D.O. and Heather Quillen update the site often with blogs and articles, and are offering a free 10-day E-course called “10 Days to a Healthier Lifestyle.”
