The Obesity Society supports any group of members with similar interests, expertise or educational backgrounds that work together to develop goals which advance the Society's strategic plan. These groups are known as Sections and are self-defined, and share a common interest. Sections develop their own leadership and represent the interests of the group before the organization as a whole.

Members of The Obesity Society may join any Section and participate in the Section activities, which are developed during the annual meeting and held throughout the year.
