APA supports launch of first Obesity Week in November 2013

The inaugural Obesity Week conference, Nov. 11-16 in Atlanta, will share cutting-edge research and host intervention and public policy discussions.

To see 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. 11-16 in Atlanta. APA is supporting the conference, which will present a broad perspective on obesity research and treatment, focusing on science, clinical application, surgical intervention and prevention.
