After completion of this web cast, participants should be able to:
- Identify the prevalence of overweight and obesity by diet patterns
- Explain how plant-based diets are beneficial for weight loss
The George Washington University Medical Center has implemented a process where everyone who is in a position to control the content of an education activity has disclosed all relevant financial relationships with any commercial interest. Potential conflicts of interest were resolved and documented by one or more of the following methods:
- Altering the individual's financial relationships,
- Altering the individual's control over content or
- Conducting an independent validation of the individual's presentation content.
Individuals who refuse to or otherwise fail to disclose potential conflicts of interest to The George Washington University Medical Center are disqualified from participation in planning or implementing CME activities.
