*Debate the clinical significance of antiretroviral weight gain
*Apply appropriate ART modification strategies for patients experiencing antiretroviral weight gain

Program Summary
Weight gain associated with the use of certain antiretroviral therapy regimens—particularly some nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors and integrase strand transfer inhibitors—is an active area of research and a topic of growing interest for HIV providers. Data are rapidly accumulating on the matter, but the overall significance of the results and how to address this weight gain is not fully understood. Join Paul Sax, MD, and Robert Dodge, PhD, RN, ANP, AACRN for an engaging discussion on risk factors for antiretroviral weight gain, current thinking on the underlying pathophysiology, and how they respond to this phenomenon when it arises in their patients.
