Goal Statement
The goals of this program are to improve clinician understanding of:

  • The metabolic adaptation in obesity
  • The value of sustained weight loss and related complications
  • The latest evidence for incretin-based therapies for long-term weight management

Target Audience
The live, virtual symposium is designed to meet the educational needs of endocrinologists (physicians and fellows), internists, primary care physicians, endocrine nurses, pharmacists, and other advanced practice professionals who will attend ENDO 2021 and care for individuals with obesity. 

Learning Objectives
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Examine the metabolic adaptations that contribute to weight loss challenges in patients with obesity
  • Describe the physiologic and metabolic effects of incretin-based therapies that lead to weight loss in patients with obesity and the benefits of sustained weight loss on obesity-related comorbidities
  • Summarize the long-term efficacy and safety data of current and emerging incretin-based therapies for the treatment of patients with obesity
