Obesity Medicine 2023, hosted by the Obesity Medicine Association, is just a short two months away, and what better way to welcome spring than with a trip to NYC! Join OMA April 19-23 for this one-of-a-kind conference to help you advance your obesity medicine knowledge and skills. OMA has compiled just a few reasons you should join us at Obesity Medicine 2023.

1. Network with experts in the field of Obesity Medicine

Participants of Obesity Medicine 2023 will have several networking opportunities to chat with and hear from other attendees and obesity medicine experts. From the Welcome Reception, several breakfast and lunch events, and an ‘Experts on the Move’ sunrise walk/run, you will be introduced to various people who share your obesity medicine goals!

2. Attend the Review Course for the ABOM Exam

If you are planning to take the American Board of Obesity Medicine Exam, Tiffany Lowe- Clayton, DO, DABOM, and MHPE will ensure you will have everything you need to be prepared. This review course offers a thorough review of the core content covered on the ABOM certification exam with a clinical focus. Not only will you be ready for the exam, but you will also be well-equipped to deliver evidence-based care for your patients with obesity.

3. Receive the most up-to-date content on the four Obesity Medicine Pillars

When you attend Obesity Medicine 2023, you will have access to the most accurate and updated information on OMA’s four obesity medicine pillars. Attend presentations that take a deeper look at the individual pillars, and hear from some of the Obesity Pillars authors themselves!

4. Attend the Fundamentals of Obesity Treatment Course in person

If you haven’t been able to attend one of the virtual Fundamentals of Obesity Treatment Courses, Obesity Medicine 2023 allows you to attend the course live and in person! Moderated by Nick Pennings, DO, FOMA, this interactive course offers introductory education about the evidence-based approaches for evaluating, diagnosing, and treating obesity in a clinical setting.

5. Gain the skills to help improve your patient’s overall health and quality of life

Sessions during the Spring Obesity Summit will focus on integrating skills in obesity medicine with an emphasis on practical treatment strategies, treating patients in special populations, patient engagement, practice and business management, research, and diving deep into various patient case studies. These sessions will provide you with everything to know about helping patients with obesity, which you can take back to your medical practice to help your patients better.

OMA hopes to see you at Obesity Medicine 2023!
