Presented by Sharp HealthCare plus

As obesity rates continue to rise, so does the need for health care providers who have an acute understanding of the issues faced by severely overweight patients.

This year’s conference theme is “Practical Approaches to the Care of the Obese Patient”. Experts will address topics associated with obesity, including the behavioral, biological, medical, surgical and social impact. They will also share current evidence-based interventions.

At the end of this conference, the attendee will be able to:

  • Describe the impact and benefits of support groups
  • Summarize multidisciplinary interventions to employ when caring for patients affected by obesity
  • Apply interventions to safely mobilize and transfer the bariatric patient
  • Demonstrate exercises that will help to maintain a healthy weight or lose weight
  • Discuss the current insulin treatments for patients with obesity
  • Explain the relationship between food insecurity/sustainability and obesity

More information, including the agenda and speaker biographies, is available on the conference website.

Please note this event is free for Sharp HealthCare employees, as well as Sharp-affiliated physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants. There is a $100 fee for non-Sharp affiliated attendees.
