PCPs stand on the frontlines of obesity management but often do not optimally provide the comprehensive and long-term care these patients require. Bias toward people with obesity can cloud clinical judgement, and comorbidities can take priority over addressing obesity. This expert-led session focuses on obesity as a serious, chronic illness and acknowledges intrinsic and extrinsic biases that negatively affect clinical judgment and relationships with patients. Clinicians will walk away with evidence-based strategies for obesity treatment that includes lifestyle interventions and long-term use of anti-obesity medications as indicated by recent guidelines. Finally, clinicians will hear about emerging treatment options that will likely expand their armamentarium.
