Dr Angela Golden: I am Dr Angela Golden. I am the owner of NP Obesity Treatment Clinic in Flagstaff, Arizona. Dr Fitch and I hope you are able to take the information in the presentation, Creating an Obesity Treatment Plan, to your clinic on Monday, to support your patients in their obesity treatment journey.
Two of our key takeaways are that America needs all providers to understand obesity is a disease, and that treating it impacts over 200 related complications. And that anti-obesity medications and surgery support the basic pillars of treatment, finding an eating plan, increasing activity, and behavior interventions.
Thank you for attending the presentation.
