In this activity, leading clinicians will provide a thorough understanding of the safety and efficacy of the currently approved pharmacologic options for managing obesity, as well as offer their practical pearls for managing patients, in order to help appropriately pair patients with the agent that will offer the best chance of weight loss with the lowest risk of adverse events. In addition, clinicians will discuss nonpharmacologic strategies, such as motivational interviewing, that will also increase a patient’s odds of success.
