Overview and Desciption

This dinner symposium will highlight recent advances in our understanding of how neurobiology and the gut mircobiome drive obesity, how patients can employ personalized dietary approaches to alter their metabolism and achieve sustained weight loss, and novel oral hydrogel technologies currently being developed for weight management and glycemic control.
