COVID-19 and the Disease of Obesity: A Video Series


In this 8-part video series, obesity expert Donna Ryan, MD, talks about the danger of COVID-19 for obesity patients, challenges facing PCPs of caring for this population, and more.

A recent editorial published in the journal Obesity warned the medical community about the dual pandemic threat ahead as the spread of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) infection became increasingly deadly worldwide among persons with overweight and obesity.

The editorial’s primary author, Donna Ryan, MD, associate editor in chief of Obesity and current president of the World Obesity Federation, recently talked to Patient Care® Online about the reasons why people with obesity, if infected with COVID-19, face more severe illness, the challenges to primary care in caring for this population, and what the future of obesity medicine could look like.
