APA supports Obesity Week 2014

The annual conference on the science, application, intervention and prevention of obesity takes place Nov. 2-7 in Boston.

To have obesity treated as a serious health condition on par with heart disease or cancer is the goal of Obesity Week, the joint annual meeting of The Obesity Society and the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery, Nov. 2-7, in Boston. APA is again supporting the conference, which will explore every aspect of obesity research, surgery, education and policy. Nearly 5,000 people attended Obesity Week 2013, exceeding organizers’ expectations.

Registration for the 2014 conference opens soon. Additional information, including a full schedule of events as well as housing and travel information, is available online.
