CEU Course Description

Research indicates that obesity contributes to many health problems, including heart disease, diabetes, and some types of cancer. Obesity can also contribute to a lower quality of life, mental health conditions, costly medical care, poor health outcomes and increased risk of death. However, obesity and other physical health issues can be prevented or managed by healthy lifestyle choices and assistance from health care professionals. Therefore, health care professionals should be aware of effective methods to help patients lose weight. This course will review effective strategies and treatment options health care professionals can use to help patients lose weight and fight obesity.

CEU Course Objectives
