Participants will gain insights into practical, holistic management strategies which address both physical and mental aspects of obesity management during menopause, aimed at enhancing clinical practice and improving patient care. Members of the EASO COMs network will be taken through a real-world case study on managing obesity during menopause, providing valuable insights for HCPs to integrate this knowledge into their multidisciplinary care plans.
