The Center for Pediatric Obesity Medicine (CPOM) sponsors the annual Advanced Therapies for Pediatric Obesity (ATPO) Conference. 

This conference delivers state-of-the-art educational content covering all aspects of pediatric obesity clinical management, including pathophysiology, complications, stigma, lifestyle therapy, and pharmacotherapy. 

ACTIVITY PURPOSE/STATEMENT OF NEED
Youth with severe obesity are often unable to lose a clinically-meaningful amount of weight with lifestyle modification alone. Pharmacological therapies are emerging as a recognized adjunctive strategy to address this otherwise recalcitrant disease, yet no guidelines currently exist for the responsible clinical use of obesity pharmacotherapy in the pediatric patient.

INTENDED AUDIENCE
Health care providers, researchers, and others interested in the clinical management of pediatric obesity.

FORMAT
Case studies, lectures, and group discussion. This course is planned and hosted by the University of Minnesota Department of Pediatrics. For more information please contact the Center for Pediatric Obesity Medicine, cpom@umn.edu or 612-626-2349.

REGISTRATION
Physician: $300.00
Other Healthcare Professional: $300.00
Resident/Fellow/Student: $150.00

  • Utilize pharmacotherapy for pediatric obesity in a safe and responsible fashion
  • Identify biological targets of obesity treatments
