Designed for clinicians and allied health professionals working in primary care settings, this one-day CME course is presented by national experts from leading obesity research and treatment centers. You will actively participate with them in developing a comprehensive approach to personalized treatment planning for your overweight and obese patients. 
The program includes didactic sessions from national leaders in obesity treatment covering practical topics in clinical obesity management from counseling strategies that promote behavior change to the perioperative management of bariatric surgical patients. Small groups in a "meet-the-professor" format will allow attendees to interact directly with experts and thought leaders in obesity treatment. We hope you will join us for this exciting Annual Meeting companion program.
