Bring Your Community Together
This year marks the 15th year of the ASMBS Foundation’s Walk from Obesity campaign. Over the last decade and a half, the ASMBS Foundation has been able to not only raise awareness through these unique events but also raise money to fund obesity research and education.
We need your help to continue to bring this event to communities in need. By hosting a walk you are bringing awareness of obesity to your community, educating your participants on obesity, treatment, and prevention, and celebrating the accomplishments of your patients. Help us reach our 2018 goals by applying to host a walk today!
Why We Host a Walk
Community Health Network and Indiana University Health collaborate together each year to host the Indianapolis Walk From Obesity.
“Our partnership is not only something we look forward to each year, it is also an intentional display of solidarity and community outreach across what would otherwise be considered competing organizations and varying disciplines of medical and surgical programs. We are able to respectively recognize the numerous programs throughout the Indianapolis metropolitan region, create networking opportunities across our specialty, and celebrate victories great and small with the patients and community partners whose lives have been impacted by obesity and obesity care.”
