14th Annual Conference on Obesity- Making Sense of Treatment Guidelines for Obesity

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

Over the last 30 years, there have been rapid increases in the number of persons who are overweight or obese. This is alarming especially because overweight and obese people are at risk for many serious health conditions, including but not limited to high blood pressure, high cholesterol and type 2 diabetes. Obesity is impacting individual lives as well as health. For the first time in two centuries, the current generation of children in America may have shorter life expectancy than their parents. In addition obesity is causing a broad range of health problems that previously weren’t seen until adulthood. (American Heart Association). The goal of this conference is to engage healthcare providers in learning about the obesity epidemic and expose them to cutting-edge clinical and research approaches for the recognition, treatment and prevention of obesity, and new federal guidelines focused on obesity in America. There will be ample time for discussion, questions and answers as well as interaction among the participants in an informal setting.
