This pre-conference workshop will offer an in-depth exploration of the factors that drive obesity, with proven clinical strategies used to optimize health outcomes in patients. Presenters will identify the underlying metabolic, dietary, and lifestyle factors that contribute to obesity and overweightness, while discussing the specific roles of inflammation and the microbiome. The course will also offer a baseline introduction to practitioners seeking to learn more about obesity and weight change patterns. Instructors will discuss the common comorbidities between obesity and cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, stroke, sleep apnea, hyperlipidemia, and other diseases. All information will allow the clinician to connect common underlying mechanisms, in order to provide cohesive diagnostic, preventive, and therapeutic interventions through the use of scientifically valid integrative approaches.
