Weight Management Symposium - 2020 Calories, Exercise and Beyond
The goal of our one-day symposium is to provide health care providers with state-of-the art lectures on currently available options for the treatment of obesity. Increasing this knowledge will make health care providers more likely to be able to address obesity in their patients and help in decreasing weight and improving the outcomes of associated health conditions.
We are closely monitoring the nationwide concern over COVID-19 and are closely following Medical College of Wisconsin administration guidelines. As of this moment, we are planning to host the event. However, this may change at any time and final decisions on whether the conference will be held will be made by the end of April 2020. Please contact Roland James at firstname.lastname@example.org with any further questions.
