Project 2014: Spring Season Unit 2

Today in Unit 2 of the Spring Season we look at the definition of obesity, designated in 2013 by the American Medical Association as a disease rather than a condition. For many years obesity was considered a condition that contributed to other diseases, not a stand-alone disease. The change in designation makes way for improved comprehensive treatment that is ongoing in the prevention and intervention of disease relapse. This matters to us as weight loss surgery patients because we know that a comprehensive approach to weight management is the one sure way to keep our health and weight in check. Take a look at this week's PDF download to learn more. We also explore a new designation in the medical field, the Obesity Medicine Physician: an agent for the comprehensive treatment and management of obesity.
