Obesity and Cardiovascular Disease: Can we break the cycle?
Chaired by John Wilding and Francisco Lopez-Jimenez, the SCOPE School will address cardiovascular complications of obesity and different methods for managing obesity in people with cardiovascular disease, amongst other topics. The SCOPE School(s) will complement the launch of an educational path of six modules for healthcare practitioners within the online SCOPE platform specifically addressing the needs of PCOs and specialists managing and treating patients with obesity, CVD, and type 2 diabetes.

• Understand the etiology and risk factors for obesity, including the current global prevalence and the challenges faced in curbing the epidemic
• Recognise the key issues in the obesity/ CVD co-morbidity
• Identify suitable treatment options for patients living with obesity and CVD and initiate effective conversations with patients
