The primary purpose of this program is to improve the knowledge and competence of pharmacists regarding obesity management, with an emphasis on the safe use, dosing, titration, and administration of injectable obesity treatment options. The program will consist of 4 microlearning modules, presented live in 2 separate 45 minutes sessions on 2 separate dates.

Learning Objectives
