Course description

This unique conference is a response to the global burden of diseases driven by obesity and diabetes and acknowledges that clinicians and systems cannot manage one or the other when they are present in the same patient, but rather must address both together. Our unique curriculum is designed to activate members of the care team to manage both conditions holistically with an eye toward the health of both our patients and our communities. Included in this 3-day deep dive, we address evidence-based patient assessment, methods to support behavioral modification in different care settings and tailoring both medical and procedural therapeutics to individuals struggling with metabolic disease.
