Obesity Medicine 2022 Conference

Thank you for joining us. To register for the 2022 fall conference, Overcoming Obesity, please click here.

The Obesity Medicine Association Spring Conference will prepare you to treat obesity at the root to manage your patients’ obesity-related conditions and improve your patient’s overall health and quality of life. Gain practical strategies to address obesity in a primary care, specialty, or obesity medicine practice.

NEW THIS YEAR! You will have the opportunity to choose attending the Proficiency (intermediate) or Masters (advanced) Track, or a mix of both! As they say, no two patients’ are the same. OMA also believes the same to be true, that no two practitioners are the same. As an attendee, you have the opportunity to build your own personalized schedule, and create your own obesity medicine learning journey! Consider yourself a master in anti-obesity medications, but more intermediate in nutrition? You can customize your session schedule to fit your needs!

Join us in Atlanta, April 27-May 1, or virtually through the Digital Experience (DX), May 18-21!
