Share Your Expertise
Deadline Extended to 12/31/16
The ASMBS Foundation is working to create a cookbook made up of recipes from bariatric healthcare providers from around the country.
We are seeking a collective effort for this one of a kind cookbook, and are asking you to help us by submitting your favorite healthy/low-carb recipe to be published. In return, you or your practice/bariatric program, will be recognized in the cookbook. This is a great opportunity to showcase your expertise and receive recognition on a national level. The cookbook will also be a great tool to provide to your patients.
Help us Reach Our Goal
We are excited to announce that we have reached 80% of our fundraising goal for the 2016 Walk from Obesity campaign. You can help us reach our goal by making a donation to an event in your community, or by making a general donation to the Walk from Obesity campaign.
With your support we can continue to bring this exclusive awareness event to communities across the country.
