How to Talk with Patients about Obesity

It’s been awhile between posts, but I thought the article below was a great one to share.

This article on Slate, which was written by a physician, highlights a number of important and timely issues related to obesity and weight management.

The focus is on adults, but the issues discussed (in the article and the book he reviewed – Fat Nation) about the complex and inter-connected causes of excess weight gain and the role health professionals can play in supporting patients and their families, are relevant for all ages.

Happy holidays…and more regular posts coming in the New Year!
