Fundamentals in Obesity as a Disease

The United States is experiencing a weight management crisis with a high prevalence of overweight and obesity observed year over year and steadily increasing across several decades. The ramifications of the obesity epidemic extend far beyond vanity concerns with excessive body fat being a shared link in many chronic diseases that limit lifespan, health-span, and overall quality of life while straining heath care resources and increasing costs. Yet, knowledge gaps in obesity as a disease, cultural weight bias and stigma, social determinates of health, and health inequalities present persistent barriers that challenge adequate health care to people with obesity. Employers represent a key stakeholder in the obesity conversation and must be empowered with evidence-based resources to influence change and advocate for their employees.
