The Brain-Body Connection in Weight Management

Type: Pre-Conference
Wednesday May 9
8:10am to 9:10am

  • Description

    We often hear the following statements and questions from our patients: “How can I control my cravings?” “I do exercise yet can’t seem to lose weight, how come?” “Why can’t I maintain my weight loss?” “What is the best therapy for me? Is there a personalized approach?” Join our interactive program to learn about the role of the brain in obesity and discuss how to approach weight issues in family practice.

    • Understand the pathophysiology of obesity and define the role of the brain in chronic weight issues.
