Recognition of obesity as a disease: implications for policy and care

Despite growing recognition within the scientific and patient community of obesity being a chronic disease, the overpowering narrative exhibited in policies, media and public commentary remains rooted in the misperception that obesity is a lifestyle choice that can be solved by people living with obesity taking up healthier habits and exhibiting willpower.

In this episode, our guests will explore the recognition of obesity as a chronic disease and the potential implications of this on government strategies for obesity treatment and management. Hosted by Joe Nadglowski (OAC) with guests Dr Stephanie de Giorgio (General Practitioner with a special interest in obesity) and Andreas Herdt (Patient advocate, Vice Chairman, Adipositaschirurgie-Selbsthilfe Deutschland e.v.,(AcSD e.V.), and Board member, German Obesity Alliance (DAA))
