About this Event

Did you know that the Canadian Medical Association, American Medical Associate and World Health Organization now consider obesity to be a chronic disease? However, clinical management and treatment are still not well understood by patients, healthcare providers, and the general public. Beyond its effects on physical health, obesity also affects peoples' mental health and has significant impact on emotional and social well-being.

Please join us for a discussion about the latest research and clinical management guidelines that aim to understand and support healthy living for individuals with obesity.
