Preparing Health Providers for Obesity Care

Over 1/3 of U.S. adults have obesity, with obesity care costing as much as $210 billion per year, and yet it is not a major focus in the training and education of our current and future health care providers. To address this critical gap, educators from over 20 organizations, including ASPPH, representing a dozen health professions have collaborated to develop the first ever set of interdisciplinary educational competencies for the prevention and treatment of obesity. Join a webinar on June 7 from 10:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. Eastern to learn about these first-of-their-kind competencies, how they were developed and how they can be implemented, and what adoption of these competencies could mean for patients.  Those in the Washington, DC area are welcome to join in-person at the Bipartisan Policy Center on 1225 Eye Street NW, Suite 1000.
