Weight Loss for Individuals with Disabilities
Monday, November 19th – 2:00pm – 3:00pm EST
Please join our expert guest speakers Richard and Muriel Saunders from the University of Kansas as we learn about effective weight loss plans in overweight adults with disabilities. This webinar will go into detail about methods, results and lessons learned in creating an effective weight loss program. These research-based programs have been proven to have great success in helping people with disabilities to keep the weight off and decrease obesity-prone health disparities. We will discuss barriers to eating healthy and strategies to increase consciousness of making healthier long-term eating decisions and how to track that progress. Join us to hear more about this important topic.
