About the Scholarship Fund

The purpose of the Hal Seim Scholarship Fund is to honor the work and dedication of Dr. Hal Seim. Dr. Seim served as the Obesity Medicine Association’s CME program director for many years. He planned unique CME opportunities and provided clinicians with top-rated obesity medicine education.

Donations to the scholarship fund go toward travel awards for physicians-in-training, providing them with an opportunity to attend an upcoming spring or fall conference at reduced or no cost.
