A leading researcher of obesity,
Dr. Samuel Klein’s Keynote presentation will focus on the concept of metabolically normal and abnormal obesity and the subgroup of obese individuals who lack the typical metabolic complications of obesity: metabolic syndrome, diabetes, insulin resistance, dyslipidemia, and hypertension. According to Dr. Klein, if we can understand why certain obese persons are protected from the adverse effects of excess body fat, we can understand more about the pathophysiology of obesity.
