Weight Management for the Aging Population | 1 CPEU
Rates of obesity are on the rise in the United States. Likewise, the population is getting older as the Baby Boomer generation reaches retirement age. These trends are complicated by the metabolic changes that occur as humans age. Elders are more at risk for developing sarcopenia and malnutrition. Managing these seemingly conflicting conditions is challenging. How can dietitians effectively assist their clients in achieving and maintaining a healthy weight while also reducing the risk of sarcopenia and malnutrition? Led by weight management dietitian, Kim Meeuwsen, RDN, CSOWM, this webinar will take a deep dive into the complexities of weight management in aging populations.
