Join us in Raising Awareness of Obesity

As healthcare providers we know obesity effects 1/3 of Americans. We also know the large bias and stigma surrounding this disease. In 2003 the ASMBS Foundation developed the Walk from Obesity not only to bring attention to our cause, but to provide individuals with treatment, prevention, and educational information.

We need the help of ASMBS members to increase our outreach and to educate more individuals on obesity. You can help make a difference in your community by hosting a Walk from Obesity event this year. Learn more at www.walkfromobesity.com/host.

The funds raised from these events helps the Foundation to fund the ASMBS research grant awards, educational programs, and advocacy initiative.
