Cost of Obesity

Expert says Brookings estimate on lifetime costs of obesity is too low

Dr Backs was interviewed for and quoted in a recent article in Modern Healthcare entitled "Expert calls Brookings estimate on lifetime obesity costs too low".  Since its classification as a disease two years, there has been more of a focus on obesity, both in terms of its treatment and prevention.  Our practice focuses on the Heart Attack and Stroke Prevention, and we are committed to identifying risk BEFORE the onset of disease to minimize any potential impact it may have.
