The Cardiometabolic Consequences of Obesity and Nutritional Strategies for Prevention

The Cardiometabolic Consequences of Obesity and Nutritional Strategies for Prevention – Frank Hu, MD, PhD

The prevalence of obesity in the US has reached epidemic proportions. In this presentation, “The Cardiometabolic Consequences of Obesity and Nutritional Strategies for Prevention,” Frank Hu, MD, PhD, reviews high-quality research demonstrating the dietary contributors to weight gain and the impact of overweight/obesity on cardiometabolic diseases and mortality. People do not eat individual nutrients; they consume dietary patterns with varying diet quality. To that end, Dr. Hu presents dietary patterns and components of those patterns that are associated with increased vs. decreased risks of disease and mortality, in addition to targeted dietary modifications that can be employed to reduce cardiometabolic risk and improve patient outcomes.

Dr. Frank Hu is Professor and Chair of the Department of Nutrition, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School.

This presentation took place at the Cardiometabolic Health Congress (CMHC) at the Sheraton Boston Hotel in Boston, MA on October 4, 2017.
