  • Describe the cutaneous effects of obesity, including the mechanical and inflammatory effects. Recognize the relationship between chronic inflammatory skin diseases and systemic comorbidities.
  • Apply diabetes detection strategies into clinic workflow.
  • Recognize the potential role of obesity treatment as a treatment for skin disease.
