Congratuations to the newest Certified Bariatric Educators!

The Certified Bariatric Educator (CBE®) is a designated credential signifying advanced knowledge in the management of obesity awarded by Obesity Canada.

The Certified Bariatric Educator exam is open globally with designations being available in Canada and a certificate of successful completion being issued for international participants.

“Achieving my Certified Bariatric Educator designation was very important to me as it demonstrates my commitment to professional growth in the field of bariatrics. I think it is important for patients to be able to identify providers who are professional, committed to understanding obesity and its complexity and treatment approaches with a compassionate lens. The CBE designation allows my patients and peers to identify my credentials as a benchmark of excellence and dedication in the field of bariatrics. I encourage any provider working in this field to enhance their knowledge and understanding so that we have future CBE’s dedicated to helping those living with obesity no matter what their discipline.

Candace Vilhan B.A, E.C.E, CBE
