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

    Description: 

    As the choices available for anti-obesity pharmacotherapy increase, clinicians are faced with options for addressing key clinical scenarios. Understanding factors that impact treatment response and how one might tailor treatment can improve treatment outcomes. Jamy Ard M.D. will review what we know and don't know in some common clinical scenarios seen in everyday practice.

  • Overcoming Obesity 2022 - Fall Obesity Summit-Pediatric Track

    The Fall Obesity Summit will expand your skills used to treat patients with obesity. Session content will explore obesity evaluation and treatment in each of the 4 pillar – pharmacotherapy, nutrition, physical activity, and behavioral modification. 

    The Pediatric, Adolescent and Young Adult Track is designed to provide clinicians with updated information regarding utilizing advanced tools of weight management, such as anti-obesity medications and metabolic-bariatric surgery, for children, adolescents and young adults with obesity. Clinicians will walk away with a better understanding of how to treat obesity in special pediatric populations, including those with genetic or syndromic obesity, intellectual disabilities, and behavioral issues such as autism spectrum disorder. Clinicians will also learn how to address the unique obesity-related medical and behavioral issues of adolescents transitioning into young adulthood and gender diverse youth.

  • Overcoming Obesity 2022 - Fall Obesity Summit

    The Fall Obesity Summit will expand your skills used to treat patients with obesity. Session content will explore obesity evaluation and treatment in each of the 4 pillar – pharmacotherapy, nutrition, physical activity, and behavioral modification. The program will include late breaking research on phenotypic-guided lifestyle interventions, emerging pharmacotherapy for obesity treatment, utilizing motivational interviewing, special populations, and much, much more.

    The treatment approaches to obesity care often give little regard to gender specific needs in weight management. Nutritional, behavioral, and physical activity treatments vary widely between gender across the lifespan. Daniela Hurtado Andrade, MD, PhD will highlight key differences in the pathophysiology of obesity between men and women and how those difference impact obesity treatment.

    Learning Objectives:

    Identify the pathophysiologic differences of obesity in men and women.

    Consider gender specific metabolic and psychologic needs across the lifespan

    Describe the limitations of obesity research in men and women

    Utilize gender specific therapies for obesity

    Jennifer Ng, MD, Dipl ABOM will review the benefits of plant-based diets in obesity management and how to incorporate plant-based diets into your practice. During the presentation, Dr. Ng will go over the evidence supporting plant-based diets in obesity management as well as important nutritional aspects of plant-based diets to counsel your patient on and how to start/overcome barriers for your patients on plant-based diets.

    Description: This session will review the benefits of plant-based diets in obesity management and how to incorporate plant-based diets into your practice.  During the presentation, Dr. Ng will go over the evidence supporting plant-based diets in obesity management as well as important nutritional aspects of plant-based diets to counsel your patient on and how to start/overcome barriers for your patients on plant-based diets. 

    Learning Objectives:

    Understand how plant-based diets can benefit obesity management

    Discuss how to get started integrating a plant-based diet into medical practice

    Learn how to work with patients to motivate them to utilize a plant-based diet to improve the quality of their nutrition

    Andres Acosta, MD, PhD will discuss the heterogeneity of human obesity and identifying predictors of response to weight loss interventions. Specifically, we identified four potential pathophysiologic and behavioral obesity phenotypes: abnormal satiation, abnormal postprandial satiety, abnormal emotional eating, and abnormal resting energy expenditure. This session will introduce preliminary data using a tailored Mayo Clinic Diet program and phenotypic guided lifestyle interventions to enhance obesity treatment outcomes.

    Obesity is a chronic, relapsing, and multifactorial disease with significant individual variability in response to therapeutic interventions. This session will discuss the heterogeneity of human obesity and identifying predictors of response to weight loss interventions. Specifically, we identified four potential pathophysiologic and behavioral obesity phenotypes: abnormal satiation, abnormal postprandial satiety, abnormal emotional eating, and abnormal resting energy expenditure. We hypothesize that obesity-related phenotypes may predict weight loss to an Individualized Lifestyle intervention based on a tailored Mayo Clinic Diet program. This session will introduce preliminary data using a tailored Mayo Clinic Diet program and phenotypic guided lifestyle interventions to enhance obesity treatment outcomes.

    Learning Objectives:

    Describe the heterogeneity of obesity

    Identify proposed obesity phenotype classifications

    Discuss preliminary outcomes of a phenotype-guided lifestyle intervention
