Obesity Summit Sponsorship Benefits

The Obesity Summit for the Provision and Coordination of Care for the Obese Patient (OS-PCOP) in its first three years, has brought together over 40 different medical societies to work together to address the need of obesity treatment. Our mission is to make the Obesity Summit enduring, with organizations meeting annually to stay current on obesity research and treatments. We will be extending invitations to the same medical and surgical societies, insurers, and additional stakeholders that attended the 2016 Summit plus additional organizations this year, with a goal of over 50 organizations represented. Also, as a result of the first two Summits, enduring inter-organizational partnerships have been developed, particularly evident by joint statements and guidelines. The following guidelines/statements have been developed and/or are currently under development as a result of the OS-PCOP:

2016 Published Guidelines

  • Guidelines on Lipids and Bariatric Surgery with the National Lipid Association (NLA) and the Obesity Medicine Association (OMA)
  • Guidelines on hernias with the American Hernia Society (AHS)

Guidelines in Development

  • Guidelines on the impact of obesity and obesity treatment on fertility with the American Society of Obstetrics & Gynecology, and the American Society of Reproductive Medicine (ASOG & ASRM)
  • Guidelines on treating patients with obesity with the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP)

We can also anticipate new initiatives and directives to come from the 2017 Obesity Summit.
