According for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than one-third of U.S. adults are affected by the disease of obesity. The obesity epidemic continues to grow, yet only about 2,000 physicians are certified to treat obesity by the American Board of Obesity Medicine, and the majority of physicians and health care professionals have not received the proper education and training to effectively treat obesity.
We have work to do when it comes to spreading the word about obesity medicine, which is why the Obesity Treatment Foundation developed the “What Is Obesity Medicine?” presentation. Use this presentation during your local speaking engagements to introduce other health care professionals to the practice of obesity medicine.
