Chelsea and Westminster held its first Medicine for Members seminar in the Postgrad Lecture Theatre this March on the topic of ‘Modern Obesity Management’.

Mr Evangelos Efthimiou (Consultant General Surgeon and Lead Clinician for Bariatric and General Surgery) gave an insightful overview of the Obesity epidemic and bariatric surgery, followed by Dr Rukshana Ali (Clinical Psychologist) who highlighted the psychological impact of obesity.

Jo Lam (Senior Bariatric Dietician) presented about diets and obesity and the session ended with Nuala Davison (Consultant Nurse Clinician) who provided an overview of the service and its future challenges.

90% of the attendees found the event useful and understood more about this topic than before they attended the event. Attendees also said they would recommend future ‘Medicine for Members’ events to friends and family.

One attendee commented, ‘A very comprehensive lecture and discussion. Well organised with ample time for our questions’.
