Dr. Wendy Scinta, a board certified weight loss physician who practices in the Syracuse area, was sworn in as the 34th President of the Obesity Medicine Association (OMA) on Sept. 16 during the organization’s fall meeting in San Antonio, Texas. Prior to her election, Scinta had served two-year terms each as president-elect, vice president and secretary/treasurer of the association.
“It’s a great honor for me to have been elected by my OMA Peers to this position,” said Scinta. “The Obesity Medicine Association recognizes that obesity is a chronic disease and takes its mission to fight it on a global scale very seriously.”
Scinta earned her bachelor’s degree in electrical and computer engineering from Clarkson University, and a master’s degree in electrical and computer engineering from the University of Rochester. She graduated from Upstate Medical University in 1998 and served her residency in Family Medicine at Duke University between 1998 and 2001. She earned her certification in obesity medicine from the American Board of Obesity Medicine in 2007 and has been practicing obesity medicine for the last 10 years.
As the founder and medical director of Medical Weight Loss of New York, Scinta has been at the forefront of obesity medicine research, treatment and management for more than a decade. Her practice, Medical Weight Loss of New York, has treated thousands of overweight and obese individuals, helping each to lose from 20 to over 200 pounds.
