Upcoming Webcasts for Weight Management Professionals

The Relationship of Obesity Treatment and Population Health Management
Presented by Tricia Ligon

Wednesday, July 12, 2017 - 3:00 PM - Eastern Time (US & Canada)

Webcast Series: Population health has become one of the biggest topics of conversation in obesity management, and for good reason. Obesity is one of the biggest health issues affecting the country, and healthcare professionals must focus on the group just as much as the individual. However, how do you formulate care that is specific to the population, particularly in treating obesity? To find out, join us on Wednesday, July 12 at 3:00 p.m. (Eastern Time) when Advocate Weight Management’s Tricia Ligon discusses population health and its correlation with obesity management.
