Obesity in the Era of COVID-19

During this webinar, Dr. Laura Reardon will explore the linkage between obesity and more severe COVID-19 complications. Participants will leave the session with an understanding of why obesity increases the severity of COVID-19, considerations for people living with obesity during the COVID-19 pandemic, and treatment plans for obesity during the pandemic and beyond.

“An increasing body of evidence has linked obesity to more severe COVID-19 complications and mortality. Obesity is now considered an important risk factor for developing severe COVID-19 symptoms. We should be treating patients living with weight effectively, aggressively, and earlier.” – Dr. Laura Reardon
