Annual Conference to Educate New or Experienced Practitioners on the Science and Business of Weight Management

2nd Annual Robard Corporation-funded Continuing Education Conference, to be held in Philadelphia on July 15-17, 2010, to feature nationally recognized lecturers focused on tackling the obesity epidemic.

Mount Laurel, NJ (Vocus) March 25, 2010 -- Robard Corporation formally announced today its 2nd Annual Continuing Education (CME/CEU) Conference, "The Science and Business of Weight Management for the New or Experienced Practitioner." The conference, which begins on July 15, 2010, in Philadelphia, will focus on the operational and treatment skills, techniques, and strategies healthcare professionals need to successfully open a new weight loss facility or enhance a current weight management program.

Obesity is an epidemic of mounting proportions. The World Health Organization reports that, “Globally, there are more than 1 billion overweight adults, at least 300 million of them clinically obese.” The problem has grown so much, in fact, that First Lady Michelle Obama formally announced in February what she called a "very ambitious" program to end the “American plague of childhood obesity in a single generation.”

Healthcare professionals are in a unique position to improve the quality of life for individuals who are obese and overweight. As the obesity epidemic progresses, healthcare professionals should look toward educational forums to learn the latest research advances, treatment strategies, and skills required to run a successful weight management business. To that end, Robard Corporation is pushing for education and is providing an opportunity for networking and the exchange of essential knowledge.

This year’s Robard funded CME/CEU conference features 13 nationally recognized lecturers, including John Hernried, M.D., F.A.C.P., Peter Howard Jones, M.D., F.A.C.P., Timothy Church, M.D., Ph.D., M.P.H., and Judy Beck, Ph.D., who will focus on practical applications that are grounded in real-world experiences. Their presentations, in addition to the “Ask the Expert” breakout sessions, offer comprehensive information and hands-on experience. Attendees will walk away with new treatment skills and business management strategies for application the moment they return to their weight management centers.

“Education and networking can help physicians overcome the barriers to treating obesity in their practices,” says Robert F. Kushner, M.D., Professor of Medicine at the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine and a speaker at this year’s conference. “Educational conferences, like Robard’s Annual CME/CEU Conference, offer knowledge and training for managing overweight patients. And with that, physicians gain confidence in their ability to treat and change patient behavior. That is the key.”
