Honoring Leaders in Bariatric Surgery!

Thank You for Attending the 2017 LEAD Awards!

The ASMBS Foundation’s annual LEAD Awards brings together members of the ASMBS and the healthcare industry to honor individuals who have shown outstanding leadership and dedication to the field of metabolic and bariatric surgery. Your attendance and support have allowed the Foundation to continue to fund advanced bariatric surgery research, professional education, and access to care initiatives.

The LEAD Awards ceremony was held on 30, 2017 at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center, in conjunction with ObesityWeek. Thank you to everyone who attended and congratulations to our award recipients. Please join us again next year in Nashville, TN!
