Medical College of Wisconsin City-Wide Grand Rounds on Obesity and Metabolic Disease

About this series

This is a quarterly lecture series to exchange ideas and viewpoints between Clinicians, Researchers (basic, translational, and population health), and Policymakers and work towards “Decreasing the burden of obesity and metabolic diseases in Wisconsin and Beyond”.

There is no such forum at the Medical College of Wisconsin now that brings providers from all specialties under one roof to learn and discuss these topics. Therefore, we have no local baseline data. Informal survey of physicians and providers from various departments reveal that there is a huge need for this activity.

Each Session may have different goals. Broadly, attendees will be acquainted with the latest developments in:

  • Pathophysiological processes related obesity and metabolic diseases
  • Medical and Surgical treatment options for obesity and metabolic diseases
  • Prevention and policy initiatives related to obesity and metabolic diseases
