NASEM Workshop: Medications and Obesity – Exploring the Landscape and Advancing Comprehensive Care

March 19 - March 20

March 19: 11 am – 4:30 pm CT
March 20: 11 am – 2 pm CT

The National Academies Roundtable on Obesity Solutions will host a virtual workshop to explore the relationship between medications and obesity. Topics of discussion will include the state of the science around pharmacokinetics and pharmacology for obesity and how complementary treatment options (such as nutrition and behavioral interventions) advance obesity care in conjunction with medication use. Speakers will emphasize people’s lived experiences, give attention to weight bias and stigma, and address the implications of pharmacotherapy for obesity on policy and legislation, economics, access, public perception and discourse, and population health.
