Surviving COVID-19: Help for people with enhanced risk due to extra weight
April 22, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 11:30 am CDT
While over 30% of Hoosiers have overweight or obesity, it is not possible to change that risk factor in the next few weeks. So how does obesity make someone more at risk for COVID-19 complications and what can we do about it now?
In this webinar, Ashley Cuellar Gilmore, MD will discuss the interaction with COVID-19 and explain what we can do today to reduce our risk of complications from the combination of obesity and COVID-19. By understanding obesity, the inflammation it can cause and the physical problems associated with it, you can decrease your risk of the disease and improve your outcomes.
A gastroenterologist who specializes in obesity management and treatment, Dr. Gilmore and her colleagues will discuss this combined risk for infection and options we can all use to improve our outcomes.Learn More Register Today
