Welcome to ObesityWeek 2013 letter

  • Language correction in paragraph 3

“We appreciate the suggestions we’ve received from TOS members and have tried to update the program to respond to some of those ideas. In addition to the symposia designed from suggestions made by TOS members and members of the Planning Committee; we also will have special sessions highlighting papers published in Obesity and [the] JAMA [Network]. Moreover, as part of ObesityWeek we have added exciting symposia from partner organizations [including] the Society for the Study of Ingestive Behavior (SSIB), the International Association for the Study of Obesity (IASO), the American college of Sports Medicine (ACSM), the American Heart Association/Council on Nutrition, Physical Activity and Metabolism (AHA), American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE), Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, and the International Federation for the Surgery of Obesity and Metabolic Disorders (IFSO).”
