Billings Surgeon Recognized on National Level

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

A Billings Clinic surgeon is recognized on a national level.

Walter Medlin is a Metabolic and General Surgeon and was awarded the Obesity Action Coalition's Member of the Year for going above and beyond to help the organization. Though Medlin is grateful and honored to receive the award, he hopes what comes out of this is community awareness of obesity and how to get help.

"With obesity, people feel reluctant to seek care because they don't feel like they deserve it. And I think the more we know about the disease of obesity, the more we can understand that taking responsibility for the disease means getting treatment," says Medlin.

The OAC was formed to bring individuals together who struggle with weight issues and provides education resources. To find out more information about the OAC, click on Connections.
