Join us on April 16th, 2024, for a transformative conversation addressing the increasing urgency of diseases like obesity and diabetes. Nearly 42% of Americans are obese, an additional 30% are overweight, and nearly 50% have type 2 diabetes or pre-diabetes. With numbers on the rise, it's imperative to explore effective and sustainable solutions.

The MIT Club of Northern California is proud to present a groundbreaking discussion on the future of reversing obesity and diabetes. Led by Dr. Hesham Younis, Digital Health Lead, our event will feature insightful dialogue with Virta Health Chief Product Officer Simon Hayhurst, and Dr. Rami Bailony, CEO and Co-Founder of Enara Health and Internal Medicine Physician at UCSF and Stanford. 

Together, we will delve into the science and practice surrounding the reversal of metabolic diseases, and the role nutrition plays in the age of weight-loss medications. Discover the personalized care model pioneered by Virta Health and explore alternative approaches for empowering individuals to make vital lifestyle changes.

Don't miss this opportunity to engage with industry leaders, gain invaluable insights, and contribute to the collective effort to combat obesity and diabetes. Join us as we embark on a journey toward a healthier future for all.
