Early Registration For Obesity Guideline Webinars Now Open

We are now just one day from the long-anticipated release of the 2020 Canadian Obesity Clinical Practice Guidelines in the Canadian Medical Association Journal (CMAJ) and on the Obesity Canada website.

But, registration for a first series of six webinars, starting Aug 11, by some of the leading chapter authors is already open. This interactive webinar series is offered through a partnership between Obesity Canada and the University of Alberta’s Office of Lifelong Learning.

For a nominal fee of just $50 (Canadian) for all six webinars (i.e. less than $10 per webinar), participants will be able to:

  1. Provide obesity chronic disease management in a planned, proactive manner
  2. Support patients to understand how their root causes, comorbidities and personal context are related to their obesity management
  3. List, review and select therapeutic approaches (behavioural, medical, surgical) to help patients develop personalized plans to manage their obesity as a chronic disease.

Speakers include Drs. Sean Wharton (Toronto), Sara Kirk (Halifax), Michael Vallis (Halifax), Sue Pedersen (Calgary), Rita Hendersen (Calgary), and myself.
