Management of Obesity in Primary Care

My name is Rita Simorra and I am a dietitian. I work for a Primary Care Centre in Barcelona, Spain. Recently we have gained a grant to set up an Obesity Department within the primary care (probably the first one in Spain...). The main objective is to offer a tailored treatment to people who suffer from obesity by a multidisciplinary team (doctor, nurse, dietitian, psicologist). Also, we are working hard with the paediatric team to enhance obesity prevention in childhood. We are planning a campaign in order to raise awareness about this chronic condition and the importance of its prevention.
