    ✓ Reviewing pharmacotherapy, including AOMs and their indications/contraindications

    ✓ Evidence-based recommendations for treating obesity

    Embark on a Transformative Learning Experience!

    Our program guides learners through a series of activities, progressing from recognizing obesity as a chronic disease in need of intervention to implementing practice changes. Witness the power of knowledge in action as you become a champion in the fight against obesity.

    Learning Objectives

    Upon successful completion of the program, participants should be better able to:

    • Recognize obesity as a chronic, complex, and progressive disease warranting diagnosis, early intervention, and long-term management.
    • Apply evidence-based recommendations for treatment for patients with obesity (encompassing AOMs including GLP-1s and SGLT2 inhibitors, behavioral interventions, and bariatric surgery).
    • Identify the appropriate treatment strategies and contraindications for anti-obesity medications for persons with concurrent conditions (e.g., diabetes, cardiovascular disease).

    Target Audience

    The target audience for this activity is U.S. healthcare professionals (HCPs), including primary care physicians (PCPs) such as family physicians and internists, physicians-in-training, nurse practitioners (NPs), physician associates (PAs), registered dietitians (RDs), nurses, and other HCPs.
