All physicians are welcome and encouraged to attend the American Board of Obesity Medicine (ABOM) Reception. The ABOM will hold the reception jointly with the Clinical Management of Obesity [CMO] and the Latin American Affairs [LAA] Sections. The CMO Section will award the first ever Clinician-of-the-Year Award to an ABOM diplomate who best exemplifies the clinical management of obesity.
All are invited to attend this inaugural reception featuring TWO FIRSTS:
The first-ever triple joint reception, hosted by the American Board of Obesity Medicine, LAA and CMO Sections, and
- The Clinician-of-the Year Award, presented by the CMO Section to an ABOM diplomate who best exemplifies the clinical management of obesity. The award is sponsored by ABOM. Certification as an ABOM Diplomate signifies specialized knowledge in the practice of obesity medicine and distinguishes a physician as having achieved competency in obesity care.
Please also join us for The CMO/LAA Section’s second-ever poster presentation—last year, poster presentations received rave reviews and calls for a repeat performance. Posters will be judged, and awards provided by each of the Sections (at their respective business meetings). The top 5 posters from each section will be displayed at the reception.
The goals of the reception are to foster interactions among TOS members interested in Latin American Affairs or Clinical Management of Obesity or the American Board of Obesity Medicine, and to celebrate, discuss, and appreciate the scientific contributions of our colleagues. Scientists with interests outside of these areas also are welcome to attend.
