Pre-Conference: Practicing What We Preach – Your Role as an Obesity Medicine Specialist | April 20

Practicing What We Preach: Your Role as an Obesity Medicine Specialist – Inspiring Change and Overcoming Negative Weight Biases to Prioritize the Management of Obesity as a Chronic Disease

Thursday, April 20 | 1:30 – 4:45 pm | Rendezvous Ballroom

This activity is jointly provided by PVI (PeerView Institute for Medical Education) and OMA (Obesity Medicine Association) and supported by an educational grant from Lilly.

This 3.0 credit hour CME/AAPA/NCPD-certified workshop will provide practical strategies on treating obesity consistent with the most recent evidence and according to current clinical guidelines, including the important role that anti-obesity medications (AOMs) play in the overall and long-term treatment of obesity.

Standardized patient videos will be utilized throughout the workshop to depict patient-provider conversations about realistic struggles with achieving weight management goals and the potential of using AOMs to improve outcomes and reduce the risk for and progression of obesity-related comorbidities. Attendees will have the opportunity to interact with their peers regarding the patient-provider conversations, evaluating what worked well and what could be improved and practice initiating nonjudgmental discussions that are designed to empower people with obesity so they can successfully achieve and sustain weight loss over the long term.
