Multimodal Approach to Obesity

Jul 11, 3:30 PM

In a variety of clinical settings, obesity is typically underdiagnosed and underassessed. The lack of a standardized method of diagnosis is likely caused by a wide range of factors, such as a lack of resources to adequately meet the needs of obese patients, time restraints on clinicians that prevent them from focusing on preventive care, a lack of provider confidence in obesity identification and patient counseling, patient and provider worries about weight stigma, and clinician antifat bias. The best way to control obesity is through a multimodal approach that includes habits that promote health, behavioral therapies, and (if necessary) pharmacological treatment or bariatric surgery. Join us live with Dr. Salvi to discuss in depth about approach to obesity.
