They should also learn methods to evaluate and treat obesity in patients – treatment methods which should include focusing on nutrition, physical activity, emotion/behavior, and medication/surgery. Finally, listeners will learn how to talk about weight with their patients in a non-judgmental, non-stigmatizing way.
