What Is Obesity Medicine?
Obesity medicine is the field of medicine dedicated to the comprehensive care of patients with obesity. Obesity medicine combines science-based medicine with individualized obesity treatment, resulting in improved health outcomes for patients and career satisfaction for healthcare providers. Obesity Medicine Association (OMA) members are physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and other healthcare providers who take a comprehensive, evidence-based approach to treating obesity. This approach is comprised of nutrition, physical activity, behavior, and medication – OMA’s four pillars.
