Level 1 Partners

The two Level 1 partners include The American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery and The Obesity Society. At this level, the two partnering organizations are co-locating their annual meetings; however, both organizations are still distinct. Both organizations have their own program committees and educational subcommittees while being governed by the overall Obesity Week Board of Managers.

Level 1 partners absorb full financial, legal, and educational outlining of the event, putting together the overall educational program, promotion, and partnership aspects.
