Current Issues in Obesity: Stigma, Science, and Solutions

1.00 CME/MOC
1.00 AANP | 0.25 Pharmacology

Obesity is a serious chronic illness that requires long-term management; however, it is also drastically underdiagnosed and undertreated. Arm yourself with a concrete understanding of the physiologic factors that contribute to obesity so that you can effectively manage this disease and prevent comorbid conditions. Hear strategies for developing personalized treatment plans based on current and emerging pharmacotherapies. Most importantly, identify biases that may be hindering your care of patients with obesity.

The evidence of the impact of obesity and sedentary lifestyles on health and disease states is well established. Finding and applying strategies to assist people with the necessary behavior changes is a monumental task, but for Americans who are at lower income levels and in traditionally underserved populations, the evidence on what is effective is tragically lacking. The social determinants of health (SDOH) impact all aspects of care delivery, from access to care, to knowing what really works. Join us as we discuss a recent randomized controlled trial that evaluated a strategy that demonstrated weight loss in underserved populations, and may have promise to aid in this important aspect of care.
