SOM IAMSE: Fat Chance for Nutrition and Obesity Education in Medical Schools

Obesity rates have risen dramatically across the US and around the world. Obesity rates in children indicate that this problem will continue to dramatically influence health care for decades to come, especially with respect diabetes and metabolic syndrome. It is essential that we prepare our future physicians to effectively treat nutritionally related conditions including obesity. This program will review the current state of nutrition and obesity education in the US and introduce the integrated nutrition model used at the Campbell University School of Osteopathic Medicine.
