With about 93 million Americans affected by obesity, the disease is prevalent in almost all medical practices. For this reason, it is imperative that physicians continue to advance their knowledge to better treat the disease. To help, the Obesity Medicine Association (OMA) offers advanced education, tools and resources to help physicians and other health professionals successfully treat and manage patients with obesity, some of which is now featured on the AMA Ed Hub.

Many educational conferences have been cancelled or postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The AMA Ed Hub offers CME/MOC, curated education and multimediaavailable at any timeto ensure physicians and medical professionals can stay current while continuously improving the care they provide.

We know that lifelong learning, licensure and certification are the lifeblood of a physicians career, as well as other health care professionals, said AMA President Susan R. Bailey, MD. Yet, its often very time-consuming and tedious for them to find all of the educational content and licensure and certification requirements they need.

The OMA is the largest organization of physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and other health professionals dedicated to preventing, treating, and reversing obesity. Members of the OMA believe that treating patients with obesity requires a scientific and individualized clinical approach that allows physicians and other health professionals to help their patients achieve their weight and health goals.

On the AMA Ed Hub, the OMA currently features Obesity: A Diseasepodcast series, to help physicians and other health professionals successfully treat and manage obesity within their practices. Here are five featured episodes within the OMA podcast series.
