Webinar: Modern Management of Obesity – Reducing the Threat of Covid-19

With the unveiling of the new government obesity strategy, the people of the UK are being ‘urged to lose weight to beat coronavirus (COVID-19) and protect the NHS’ (www.gov.uk). Now, more than ever, it is important to understand the impacts obesity can have on the wider population, and on the individual. 


Join us and Dr Chinnadorai Rajeswaran (Raj), Consultant Physician specialising in obesity, Diabetes and Endocrinology. Raj is the Director of Simplyweight Ltd and runs The London Obesity Clinic at 10 Harley Street. His experience in treating those with weight problems and knowledge in researching obesity will inform the talk invaluably.


The Covid-19 pandemic has highlighted the necessity to look at the body holistically and understand underlying factors which could be at play, particularly obesity. We will be examining the affects it has had on individuals and the population throughout the pandemic, and why this has been such a prevalent issue.


However, obesity is not just about eating more and exercising less. We will be exploring why this is, including, significantly, a discussion on the gut-brain axis and hormones involved in hunger and fullness. There are metabolic and musculoskeletal consequences of obesity which need to be considered, and we will be investigating these using three case studies. 


Through lifestyle alterations, modern medical management, and surgical management of obesity, we will be understanding the pros and cons of each method, and how your patients can reduce the threat of Covid-19 to themselves.



We will send you an email with instructions to register and gain access to the webinar 'room' 24 hours before, and a reminder 1 hour before the event.

  • Understand the impact of obesity on the body and why it has been such a threat in the Covid-19 pandemic
