Personalized Medicine: The Role of Obesity in Prescribing

Often, when we think of personalized medicine we think of genes and high tech solutions to complicated problems.  In this presentation, Dr. Gillian Bartlett (Dept. of Family Medicine McGill University) will present some of the work her group has done on exploring personalized medicine from the perspective of patient characteristics that are easily measurable; in this case, obesity.

Results will be presented from studies that have examined what happens when we ignore the literal elephant in the room – excess weight – and the impact this has for primary care physicians.
