2. Consider information about unique body types and ethnic backgrounds when diagnosing obesity.
3. Treat obesity using medications and lifestyle modification.
4. Analyze reasons for the rising cost of health care in the United States.
5. Recommend individual and community interventions and practices that maximize health.
