Rebekah Kurr is the registered dietitian for Wesley Woodlawn Bariatric Surgery Center. After receiving her Master of Science in Dietetics and Nutrition from the University of Kansas School of Medicine, Rebekah moved to Wichita and has been practicing as a dietitian for five years. During this time, she has worked in many areas including cardiac education, diabetic education and bariatrics.
Before surgery, Rebekah meets with patients to educate and counsel them on their new eating lifestyle. This is key to developing a dietary plan based on each patient’s specific needs. Rebekah encourages patients to start making changes to their diet pre-surgery to ensure an easier transition after the procedure. Patients can expect to see Rebekah often, as she makes frequent rounds at Wesley Woodlawn and also checks in with patients after hospital discharge to discuss how their new diets are working.
