ENP81: Obesity Fellows Program

According to the National Institutes of Health, more than two in five adults have obesity in the United States, and nearly one in three is overweight. To equip health care practitioners with the resources they need to treat patients with obesity, the Endocrine Society recently held its innaugual obesity fellows program, an exclusive, application-based, educational activity for current fellows. The program covered a wealth of information, and host Aaron Lohr talks with Amy Rothberg, MD, DABOM, program chair and a clinical professor of internal medicine at the University of Michigan’s School of Public Health. If you weren’t able to attend the fellows program, we have a free series of on-demand lectures available online, and those are accredited. With thanks to Lilly USA LLC and Novo Nordisk for making both the obesity fellows program and this podcast episode possible through an unrestricted, educational grant.
