The Current Understanding of Pre-Pregnancy Weight, Gestational Weight Gain, and the Impacts on Maternal and Child Health Among Women with Obesity: A Virtual Workshop (Webinar)


When: June 13, 2018 (12:00 PM Eastern)

Topics Children, Youth and Families, Food and Nutrition, Public Health, Women's Health
Activity: Roundtable on Obesity Solutions
Board: Food and Nutrition Board

Obesity affects many women, children, and adolescents in the United States. In 2009, the Institute of Medicine and the National Research Council published Weight Gain During Pregnancy: Reexamining the Guidelines, which recommends gestational weight gain guidelines based on pre-pregnancy BMI and considers maternal and child health outcomes. 

The Roundtable on Obesity Solutions is hosting a 1-hour webinar that will discuss new evidence since the 2009 report, focusing on women with class II and III obesity. The webinar will: explore new evidence on trends and associated health outcomes; discuss promising interventions, including patient-centered counseling; and highlight limitations of the current evidence and research gaps.

 

Join us on Wednesday, June 13 at 12 PM ET for this one-hour event to hear from our guest speakers:

  • Lisa Bodnar, University of Pittsburgh
  • Anna Maria Siega-Riz, University of Virginia
  • Jamie Stang, University of Minnesota
