Excess Weight: 10 Ways to Avoid Prediabetes, Type 2 Diabetes and Heart Disease
Occurs Friday, December 4, 2020 from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM
Multiple factors can contribute to a person becoming overweight or obese. While poor diet and inactivity are often blamed, other factors – including some beyond our control like genetics, hormones and medical conditions – might have a significant effect too. Whether overweight or obese, excess body weight increases a person’s risk for many dangerous health issues.
In this webinar, Dr. Betul Hatipoglu, Director of the Diabetes and Obesity Center for University Hospitals and Dr. Ian Neeland, Director of Cardiovascular Prevention for University Hospitals Harrington Heart & Vascular Institute, will review 10 things people with excess body weight can do to prevent complications.
Participants will learn:
- What overweight/obesity is and what it’s not
- Practical ways to lose weight and avoid prediabetes, type 2 diabetes and heart disease
- How to implement lifestyle changes
- What University Hospitals is doing to address these issues and help people live healthier lives
An audience question and answer segment is included.
The event is free but registration is required.
