This program will provide perspectives on the importance of weight loss quality and preservation of lean mass in the treatment of people living with obesity. Speakers will discuss current outcomes and why focus on quality is integral to treatment, emerging therapeutics that optimize weight loss quality, and why this is critical in certain populations.
In-person seating is limited and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Those who are unable to join in person can tune in virtually to the livestreamed session.
