November - Letter from the Executive Director

Dear Colleagues,


As we head into the holiday season, I’d like to wish all of you happy holidays and offer a sincere thank you to TOS leadership, members, staff, supporters and sponsors for a very successful year. We’re off to celebrate Thanksgiving following the completion of the inaugural ObesityWeek conference. Combining efforts with our partner the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) led to quite an incredible event. If you weren't there in person, I’m sure you heard a great deal of buzz about this meeting, which was five years in the making.


I’m pleased to share that we surpassed our meeting attendance goal with nearly 4800 researchers, clinicians, surgeons and other obesity professionals joining us in Atlanta. It was a fantastic opportunity for all of us to network and connect with both old and new colleagues. And, the symposia discussions and groundbreaking research presentations were quite impressive, reaching far beyond Atlanta, securing the attention of millions through the news stories and social media activity generated during the conference.


As we wrap up 2013, we’re looking ahead to ObesityWeek 2014 and hope you’ll share your suggestions for symposia through the website here. In addition, don’t forget to claim your CME credits here.


Thanks again for your support in making ObesityWeek 2013 a success, and happy holidays!
