Our founder, Dr. Latonya Fore-Williams, recognized a critical gap in the healthcare system: the need for a clinic that addresses obesity with an understanding of cultural and community needs, grounded in evidence-based care.


This realization inspired the creation of Forward Weight and Wellness.


Our services combines expertise and passion to deliver inclusive, equitable, and evidence-based weight management care that respects each patient's personal experiences.

I’m Dr. Latonya Fore-Williams.

Just like you, I tried many diets and read every book that promised weight loss. I even asked my doctor to help me lose weight. Some were successful; most were not. And I always found myself regaining the weight.


As a Certified Nurse Practitioner in Obesity Medicine, I’ve helped thousands of patients reach their weight and wellness goals.


This is not just pills, shots, and another meal plan. It’s research-backed education and support.


Fill out the form here to get started. This will give me information about your goals and what you’re looking for.  It will also help me know if we will be a good fit to work together. 


Together, let's move forward towards achieving your weight and wellness goals!
