Dishing The Science with Dr. Sue

Dr. Sue Pedersen

Thanks for tuning in!   I'm a medical doctor and Specialist in Endocrinology and Metabolism in Canada, and I'm also certified as a Diplomate of the American Board of Obesity Medicine. 
Why do I blog and podcast about weight management, obesity, and diabetes? Well, there is a LOT of misinformation out there, so I'm here to provide a resource that you (as a person/patient or as a health care provider) can trust! I bring to you hot topics, new science, and breaking news, with some mythbusting mixed in too! With over 20 years (and counting) of experience as a physician, I always report, share, and interpret the information with the person living with obesity or diabetes as the focus.  With nearly 3 million hits on my blog to date, I am sure you will find something important to you/your patients. I'm excited to share this journey with you!
