About the webinar:

Join us and NBC’s Today Show nutrition and health expert Joy Bauer to dive into the ever-changing research on dietary patterns for weight management. In this webinar, Joy, Dr. Amy Goss and Christine Tenekjian explore the notion that one size does not fit all when it comes to the scales. What really works? Where do ‘good’ and ‘bad’ fats fit in, and how do they impact weight and health? And what tactics are useful in helping patients adapt and succeed with their culture in mind? Tune in to hear the latest insights on dietary patterns for weight management.
