A Conversation with Sandra: Bringing Care to the Next Level though Discussion on How to Treat Obesity and Co-Existing Morbidities

The National Health Care for the Homeless Council is presenting a webinar on December 7th to learn about Body Mass Index (BMI), obesity, and health ailments. This webinar will be hosted by Sandra Arevalo from the Montefiore Hospital in the Bronx, New York. The goal of this webinar is to highlight the difficulties associated with care amongst people experiencing homelessness with obesity.

In doing so, attendees will be asked to participate by highlighting their success and difficulties with screening for obesity. We will be specifically highlighting the implementation of weight management techniques and how obesity affects other parts of the body (such as diabetes, high blood pressure, hypercholesterolemia, cancers, depression, and bone health such as knee pain and bone pressure).
