One simple possibility is to use the tcolorbox package:




\frametitle{Consensus to define FD symptoms}
\item Epigastric discomfort or pain.
\item \HLtext{Postprandial heaviness.}
\item Early satiety.

\HLtext is overlay aware.

  • What exactly do you mean when you say 'overlay aware'? (Sorry if I'm not up-to-date on my beamer lingo.) Commented Aug 9, 2013 at 13:39

    @SeanAllred that it admits overlay specifications, as in \Hltext<3->{text}. Commented Aug 9, 2013 at 13:49
