Course Overview

Obesity is a major health concern in the US since it affects about 34% of the population, with over half of US adults classified as being overweight. Obesity is associated with several medical conditions, either as a risk factor for disease, or as a consequence of obesity. These conditions include type 2 diabetes, hypertension, and various cardiac diseases. Obesity also increases the risk of osteoarthritis, gallstones, sleep apnea, GERD, and certain malignancies. There are negative psychosocial consequences of obesity as well. The etiology of obesity is complex, but new research has shed light on various neuroendocrine pathways and mediators associated with obesity. These pathways are the targets for newly approved drugs for obesity as adjuncts to diet and exercise. This webinar will equip pharmacists and pharmacy technicians with a better understanding of the physiological factors that must be overcome for successful weight management. A focus on novel, approved therapeutic approaches will be discussed, as well as traditional obesity management strategies.
