After Hours Podcast Episode 2: J. Michael Gonzalez-Campoy MD, PhD, FACE

2019;7:776–85

“It is against the law in Minnesota for the state of Minnesota to prescribe obesity medications. So, if I write a prescription for an obesity medication, it doesn’t get covered.”  –Dr. J. Michael Gonzalez-Campoy

In episode two of After Hours, host Katy Henriksen talks with Dr. J. Michael Gonzalez-Campoy, Medical Director and Chief Executive Officer of the Minnesota Center for Obesity, Metabolism and Endocrinology in Eagan, Minnesota, about the need to change national attitudes about treating obesity as a disease to provide treatment for patients who need it.
