Next week is ObesityWeek, and a big week for the ASMBS Foundation. We have several different programs taking place throughout the week that we would like to invite you to.
We will kick off the week with our three day virtual step challenge – The United We Step Challenge. We invite you, your colleagues, and friends to take the challenge to help us raise awareness of obesity in America. Monday through Wednesday participants will track their steps for a chance to win prizes and compete to take the title of “Top Stepping Team.”
On Tuesday, the Foundation will hold its annual LEAD Awards ceremony to honor those who have show true dedication and support of the field of metabolic and bariatric surgery. We like to take this opportunity every year to shine a light on those who have shown outstanding achievements and thank them for all of their hard work. Please join us, and the Joyful Choir, in celebrating these extraordinary members of our community! Seats are limited – please be sure to purchase your tickets soon.
Grab your dancing shoes for the Walk from Obesity Jazz March on Thursday afternoon! Led by a traditional second line jazz band, we will march down the streets of New Orleans in appreciation of our 2016 Walk from Obesity Event Leaders, volunteers, and sponsors. Our Walk from Obesity campaign would not be possible without their hard work and dedication. Visit the Foundation’s Walk from Obesity booth #136 in the exhibit hall to learn how you can bring this exclusive event to your community in 2017.
Don’t forget to stop by the Foundation’s desk near registration to learn more about our programs and how you can get involved.
Thank you to everyone who has supported the ASMBS Foundation this year. We could not continue to fulfill our mission without you!
See you in New Orleans!
