|Does When You Eat Matter?
Attend the Blackburn Symposium at ObesityWeek® to Find Out
Recent research provides new insights into the importance of not just of what we eat, but also when we eat for glucose control, energy expenditure and metabolic health. These insights are of clinical relevance, given the high prevalence of obesity, type 2 diabetes, late-night eating, breakfast skipping, short-fasting durations, irregular meal times, shift work, and sleep and circadian disturbances.
Attendees at ObesityWeek will be able to learn more about these topics during the annual Blackburn Symposium — Intermittent Fasting and Circadian Rhythms: Does When You Eat Matter? The symposium will take place on Wednesday, Nov. 6, from 10:30 a.m. to 12 noon at the Mandalay Bay South Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV.

The Obesity Society (TOS) Council member Scott Kahan, MD, FTOS, and Ted Kyle, RPh, advocacy advisor to TOS Advocacy Committee are part of an author team that wrote an analysis showing how Medicare can save money.
The new report suggests that expanding coverage of anti-obesity interventions to eligible individuals could generate $20–$23 billion in budgetary savings to Medicare over 10 years.
According to the study's authors, most of the projected cost savings come from lower utilization of ambulatory services and prescription drugs. Posted online in the Aug. 19, 2019, issue of the Journal of Medical Economics, the study examined adults aged 65 and older in the United States.
