Attend the Cleveland Clinic 17th Annual Obesity Summit 

Register to join your colleagues for Cleveland Clinic’s 17th Annual Obesity Summit, offered both IN PERSON and via LIVE STREAM. The Summit has a long-standing tradition of attracting a diverse mix of health care practitioners interested in discussing innovative solutions and new strategies for diabetes, obesity and cardiovascular disease management. This Summit features sessions that highlight the causes of obesity and diabetes, preventive strategies, and therapeutic management approaches, including health disparities, lifestyle, diet & exercise, surgical treatment, medical treatment, patient-centered treatment, obesity types and complications, and weight recurrence. With a focus on dynamic lectures, interactive workshops, and panel discussions, we are confident participants will receive the same cutting-edge, dynamic content they have experienced for the past 16 years. 

By Attending, You Will Be Able To:

  • Identify methods to address the health disparities, social stigma, weight bias and policies related to obesity.
  • Describe strategies for treating obesity through weight-loss approaches that focus on behavior change, lifestyle, diet and exercise.
  • Describe medication options for the treatment of obesity including GLP1 and GIP clinical trials and compare and contrast efficacy and side effect data of pharmacologic treatments for obesity and strategies for obtaining insurance coverage.
  • Compare the safety and efficacy of metabolic and bariatric surgeries and engage patients in shared decision-making conversations about those risks and benefits.
  • Recognize and manage obesity-related complications including cancer, metabolic (dysfunction) associated fatty liver disease and other comorbidities.
  • Describe the pathophysiology of weight regain and muscle preservation during weight loss.  
  • Highlight weight-sensitive care for primary care through the lifespan, including family-based approaches for pediatric, adolescent and elderly populations.
