The ObesityWeek Program
Obesity Week 2013 is the inaugural event co-locating the American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) and The Obesity Society (TOS) annual meetings. In doing so, the over 60 years of combined experience in the study of obesity and its management are reflected in an interdisciplinary program from which all attendees will benefit.
Both organizations have worked to give attendees the greatest value for their registration fee as they are able to attend both ASMBS and TOS Scientific Sessions. These sessions will include: Debates, key lectures, keynote speakers, networking/social events, oral presentations, panel discussions, paper and video sessions, poster presentations, partner and organizational symposiums.
During the week, there are four scheduled opportunities for TOS and ASMBS attendees to come together; four opportunities where there are no competing programming or activities. All attendees are encouraged to take advantage of the following shared events:
