Time Well Spent: Treating Obesity and Diabetes
Community Collective: Time Well Spent – Navigating the Challenges of Treating Obesity and Diabetes is an educational curriculum designed for rural primary care clinicians to enhance outcomes for individuals with obesity through improved diagnosis and use of therapy options to treat type 2 diabetes (T2D). This regional series consists of three individual activities (2 virtual and 1 live in-person) tailored to the educational needs of rural U.S.-based clinicians who treat patients with T2D and obesity and practice in geographic areas with a greater prevalence of the disease. Local experts will share their experiences in the treatment of T2D and obesity and will also discuss disease-related risk factors and comorbidities, strategies to treating and managing T2D and obesity, the most recent safety and efficacy data for approved and emerging T2D medications, as well as approaches for shared decision-making and addressing health inequities within rural populations. Community Collective is designed to facilitate networking and collaborative consultation among local clinicians and practicing clinicians who practice in your area.
