Approximately 70% of all adults in the United States are overweight or have obesity. Unfortunately, obesity remains underdiagnosed and inadequately addressed in routine practice. While enormous strides have been made in recent years relative to the safety and efficacy of anti-obesity medications in inducing meaningful and sustainable weight loss and improvement of weight-related health risks, these agents remain underutilized in clinical practice. To address these gaps and improve the practice of primary care providers (PCPs) who treat patients with obesity, this educational intervention will facilitate exchange of information, clinical experience, and practical guidance, while establishing sustainable support networks between obesity-management specialists and PCPs.
