Office Management of Obesity

Approximately 127 million adults in the U.S. are overweight, sixty million are obese, and nine million are severely obese. Dangerous diseases and conditions such as diabetes, coronary artery disease, stroke, and peripheral vascular disease are on the rise, threatening quality of life and placing a tremendous burden on our health care system.

The Obesity Society is addressing this epidemic by launching the first in a series of online Continuing Medical Education courses to give health care providers the most up-to-date information to help their patients.

Office Management of Obesity is designed to provide tools and techniques which detail

  • How to assess health risks.
  • When and how to treat and manage obesity.
  • How to create a suitable office environment.
