Symposium Session: Semaglutide for Weight Loss: The RDN’s Role

This presentation will explore semaglutides, which belong to a class of medications known as glucagonlike peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists (sold as Wegovy, Ozempic, and Rybelsus). In addition to a valuable overview of these important and widely popular medications, Escobar will discuss their mechanisms of action, nutrition recommendations for patients on these medications, and strategies to manage common side effects.

This is not a webinar or course for purchase - this is a module for credit claiming for our 2024 Spring Symposium attendees and cannot be purchased or taken by non-attendees. These sessions are exclusive to our Symposium; however, the topics may be revisited in the future in the form of a webinar or self-study course.
