Rachelle McCabe, DNP, ARNP, FNP-C Related Seminars and Products

My name is Rachelle McCabe, I am a family nurse practitioner with Iowa Weight Loss Specialists.  I specialize in medical weight loss and work with patients through the bariatric surgery process including presurgical counseling and long-term post-op care.  I graduated with my Doctor of Nursing practice degree from the University of Iowa where I completed my graduate project on how patients with obesity are treated in primary care.  I researched the stigma and deficiencies in care surrounding individuals struggling with this disease, which are many.  I have had the pleasure to meet with experts working in the field of obesity medicine throughout my studies and career.  I felt called to form a collaborative of interested healthcare professionals across the state to discuss trends, standards of practice, and concerns surrounding the care of patients with obesity in Iowa.  I established the Iowa Obesity Society, LLC early last year.  I am also a member of the American Nurses Association, Iowa Nurses Association, Iowa Nurse Practitioners’ Society, The American Association of Nurse Practitioners, PEO, and the Obesity Medicine Association.
