COVID-19 Video Series: Harold Bays, MD on Obesity and weight management

May 29, 2020

This week I spoke with Endocrinologist Harold Bays, where we discuss the problem of obesity, and the challenges of working with obese and diabetic patients to help manage their weight and stay healthy. Dr. Bays is the medical director and president of the Louisville Metabolic and Atherosclerosis Research Center, as well as an expert in obesity and lipid medicine, and has some great insights for both clinicians and patients alike.
