Meet the future of obesity treatment: Behavior change + tailored weight-loss meds = improved health and lower costs
Obesity is a costly epidemic. It contributes to at least 60 comorbidities and high-cost medical conditions, costing employers 2X more than employees at a healthy weight. The growing prevalence and substantial impact of obesity are catalysts for change, driving the surge in demand for weight-loss medications. While these new treatment opportunities are transforming how employers and health plans address obesity, they also present significant cost and resource challenges.
Scott Paddock, CEO of Wondr Health, is passionate about helping employers and health plans overcome the cost, complexity, and struggle of obesity management and weight-loss medication coverage with their ground-breaking program, Wondr Advanced. Leveraging over 15 years of behavior change experience and partnerships with 1,000+ employers and 80+ health plans, Wondr Advanced pairs behavior support with tailored weight-loss medication management and 1:1 expert care. By bringing together the fundamentals that improve health and contain costs, Wondr Advanced is turning the tide against the obesity epidemic.
Join Scott as he shares recommendations for employers and health plans considering an obesity management program and reveals new developments for metabolic, emotional, and physical health transformation through behavior change.
