Keep informed on key issues in the obesity community.

The Obesity Society (TOS) is the leading organization of scientists and health professionals dedicated to understanding and reversing the epidemic of obesity. Our members work every day to address the many adverse health, economic, and societal effects of this epidemic.

TOS develops position statements and policies designed to promote innovative research, effective education, and evidence-based clinical care that will improve the health and well-being of people with obesity. These statements and policies incorporate the perspectives of patients, scientists, policymakers, physicians and other clinicians.

The Society’s vision is to solve the challenges of obesity through deeper understanding and coordinated action.
