    Panelists include: Chris Gallagher, Dr. Verlyn Warrington, Dr. Vicki March, Dr. Leslie Golden, Dr. Laura Davisson , and Dr. Michael McClurkan    


    Description:   This webinar will review the obesity medicine clinician’s role in advocacy efforts as it relates to patient access to AOMs on both a macro as well as micro level.  Through a panel-based discussion based on lived experience in their various practice locales, participants will hear from key members of the OMA’s Advocacy Committee including remarks from Chris Gallagher, the OMA’s consultant on advocacy and policy matters.  


     Objectives: 

    1. Verbalize the available resources to both obesity medicine clinicians and their patients as it relates to advocacy for anti-obesity medications (AOMs) and other treatments for obesity.
    2. Identify potential partnerships within health systems, local, state, and federal agencies for which to advocate for access to obesity treatment.
    3. Understand the impact of implicit bias and obesity as it relates to access to care for patients.

    *The expiration date listed above is the last day CME/CE credit can be claimed for this specific presentation.

    Description: 

    Clinicians are likely familiar with total energy expenditure being comprised of resting energy expenditure, diet induced thermogenesis, and physical activity. However, there are other less well-known factors that affect total energy expenditure, complicating both its estimation and measurement.  The goal of this session is to familiarize participants with several of these factors using a case-based format.

    Carl Lavie, JR., M.D., FACC, FACP, FCCP

    CME/CE Expiration Date: 2/9/2026* 

    *The expiration date listed above is the last day CME/CE credit can be claimed for this specific presentation.

    Description: 

    In this webinar, Dr  Carl Lavie will discuss the adverse effects that obesity has on the major CVD risk factors and to increase almost all CVD. However, despite these facts, patients with obesity and established CVD often have a better short and medium-term prognosis than do leaner patients with the same CVD. This is termed the obesity paradox. Considering this, Dr Lavie will also discuss the potential for weight reduction, especially with increased levels of physical activity and exercise that also increases cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF) and discuss the role of CRF on the obesity paradox.

    Description:

    Fundamentals of Obesity Treatment - Virtual is a 1.5-day interactive virtual course offering introductory education about the evidence-based approaches for evaluating, diagnosing, and treating obesity in a clinical setting. The content is appropriate for physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, clinicians-in-training, and other healthcare providers who treat patients with the disease of obesity. On the first day, attend virtual lectures to learn about the basic concepts that define obesity as a disease, the pathophysiology of obesity, and how to evaluate patients for obesity and related diseases using ethical, non-stigmatizing communication. Then review strategies for treating obesity using four treatment pillars: nutrition, physical activity, behavior, and pharmacotherapy. On the second day, work in virtual breakout groups on patient cases to develop comprehensive treatment plans using interventions in all four treatment pillars. Gain tools to begin developing effective treatment plans for patients affected by obesity in your practice.

    The Fundamentals of Obesity Treatment - Virtual course is intended to help clinicians build their foundational knowledge to determine whether they want to pursue more advanced education in obesity medicine. For those who do not want to pursue further education, this course will provide them with the tools to confidently refer their patients with obesity to a specially trained medical professional.
