A guide for the management of obesity in the Primary Care Setting

Front of the Weight Can't Wait magazine

The Weight Can’t Wait guide fills the gap in obesity management training and provides healthcare professionals with a short, accessible, practical, and informative guide to effective obesity care.

The Weight Can’t Wait guide is separated into three sections that represent the primary care settings in which effective obesity care takes place: pre-encounter, encounter, and post-encounter. An additional curated resources list is also available for download below.
