    Beyond the Burn- Why Physical Activity is Essential for Health

    Register Here

    Physical activity is often considered the “calorie-out” part of the equation of calorie balance. With newer anti-obesity medications leading to higher levels of weight reduction, primarily due to changes in caloric intake, some clinicians may be questioning the value of physical activity counseling. In this webinar, we will discuss why physical activity is crucial for health and well-being, especially since the development of newer highly effective anti-obesity medications. We will review the mechanism of action of various types of activity, and demonstrate that, without physical activity, we cannot optimize our patient’s health.

    Speakers: Karli Burridge, PA-C, MMS, FOMA

This session will delve into the latest recommendations for physical activity, including duration, intensity, and frequency, and discuss their impact on weight management.

By the end of the session, participants will have a greater understanding of the available options and how to make the most of these tools and recommendations while helping your patients make meaningful changes and achieve sustainable results.
