Proactive and Progressive Approaches in Obesity Management

This activity explores obesity as a multifactorial, recurring disorder, with key genetic and environmental drivers. New genetic and epigenetic insights will provide an understanding of the inheritance, development, and treatment of obesity. The role of CNS pathways and key gastric hormones involved in the regulation of food intake, energy homeostasis, and body weight are also addressed throughout the activity. This article will challenge practitioners to acknowledge obesity as a serious disease, and help overcome common stigmas and barriers to treatment and maintenance.
