Join series host Dr Robert Kushner, Medical Director of the Center for Lifestyle Medicine at Northwestern Medicine in Chicago, as he interviews fellow experts in the field of obesity on how they tackle everyday challenges when treating patients with obesity and shares advice on how clinicians can optimize patient outcomes in this ever-evolving disease area.
