The morning session, which is open to the public, features:

  • Presentations from experts on medications to aid weight loss and appetite suppression
  • An interactive cooking demonstration showcasing how to make healthy dietary changes while enjoying nourishing, accessible, affordable, and delicious food
  • An overview of recent advances in obesity care that are making 2023 a pivotal year

The afternoon session is designed as an obesity treatment boot camp for healthcare professionals, but all are welcome to attend. There is a nominal fee for physicians who would like to claim continuing medical education (CME) and maintenance of certification (MOC) credits for participating in the session.

Lunch will be provided from noon to 1 pm for those who register in advance.

Weight Wellness Day is sponsored by the UT Southwestern Nutrition and Obesity Research Center (NORC) and is being held in conjunction with The Obesity Society's Obesity Week 2023.
