Learn the essentials of developing comprehensive and individualized obesity treatment plans utilizing OMA’s four pillars of clinical obesity treatment: nutrition, physical activity, behavior, and medication. Then use real-life case studies to apply what you learned in practice.

The interactive workshop format will allow you to focus your attention on one pillar at a time and gain the skills to apply the key concepts of obesity medicine in your practice. On day one, experts in the four topic areas will lead didactic sessions to cover the clinical essentials of each obesity treatment approach. Once you’ve covered the fundamentals, you’ll be ready for day two – an interactive learning experience. Engage in discussions with your colleagues, and walk through several case studies guided by a topic expert to build a comprehensive, individualized obesity treatment plan.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]*This Live activity, Building an Obesity Treatment Plan, with a beginning date of 04/03/2019, has been reviewed and is acceptable for up to 11.00 Prescribed credit(s) by the American Academy of Family Physicians.
