Huge congratulations to Katie Antony, MD, of the UW Ob-Gyn Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine, who recently earned her third board certification! Antony studied for and passed the American Board of Obesity Medicine certification exam.

Over the years, Antony has worked to improve care for pregnant patients with obesity, from clinical recommendations and protocols to communication strategies for patients about obesity. In the process of preparing for the exam, Antony reports learning a lot about preferred terminology, best approaches for discussing obesity, and interventions that are effective at improving health.

 “The CME classes I took to study for this and the exam were generally covered by a combination of CME funds from the department and a faculty development grant, so I wanted to express my gratitude to the department for supporting this endeavor,” Antony says.

Congratulations on this incredible achievement, Dr. Antony!
