  1. Dear Dr. Sharma:

    I would like to attend your 5As of obesity workshops. I am a family physician who lives in Toronto Ontario. Please provide me with a list of obesity workshops for 2016 in Toronto as I am very interested in attending.

    Thank you,

  2. I am wanting to teach the 5As to healthcare providers for use in primary care. I am wondering if there is a learning module that can be utilized for free or minimal charge to help me do this? Any suggestions in teaching the 5As would be much appreciated! Katie
