Please join us for the final EASO COMs webinar of 2023, titled “Women’s Health and Obesity: Pregnancy, Fertility and Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)” which will be hosted live on Tuesday 28th November 2023.
In this 1-hour webinar, two expert clinicians in obesity will explore important clinical areas in women’s health: pregnancy and fertility. First, attendees will learn about the interplay between fertility and obesity, with a special focus on PCOS, and will hear how GLP-1 agonists can support treatment. Next, the links between obesity and pregnancy, including associated complications and unique challenges for patient care will be presented. Practical strategies to enhance care to best support women’s health when delivering treatment and care to patients with obesity will be discussed.
Professor Barbara McGowan (MD, PhD) – Co-Chair of the EASO Obesity Management Working Group will guide the session. Delegates of this live event will have the opportunity to ask our speakers questions to help develop and improve their practices and clinical management across the EASO COMs network.
