Where Education Meets Celebration

The ObesityHelp Conferences are where education meets celebration! For 25 years, the support given and received has been the backbone of the ObesityHelp Community. When you come to a conference, you're not just an attendee but an essential voice in our support family.

At an OH Conference, you'll meet people who understand your struggles and triumphs. You'll experience acceptance, connection, and many "they get me" moments. You’ll also:

  • Learn from supportive speakers and helpful exhibitors
  • Participate in genuine conversations and build connections
  • Access the latest info on nutrition, surgery, or medical weight loss
  • Discover strategies, tips, and tools to care for your mental health
  • Experience motivation, inspiration, and empowerment

Hear from past attendees and read about why they attend OH Conferences each year:

Let me tell you, the OH events are right up behind my surgery in the best decisions I have made in my life. The connections I’ve made with other people who “get it”, the inspiring stories, the motivational speakers, the yummy product sampling and giveaways all make it so worth while.-Jackie Stewart

The OH2019 Conference was awesome! It was my first time attending and I definitely hope to make it to next year's event. It was such a wonderful experience to see a community of individuals come together as not only a group, but as a family. I had the experience of walking down the red carpet and runway. The amount of support we all received was amazing. I’ve never felt so confident!-Caitlin Petellis

To anyone that has had weight loss surgery, waiting to have their surgery or researching bariatric surgery, my advice is to GO!!! Go to an OH Conference to empower yourself or to support a friend or family member. It is the perfect venue to obtain the information you need about the various weight loss surgery options that are available. Family members and friends become educated on how to support those going through the ‘journey’. You will have a delightful time and make great friends.-Kevin Stephens

Whether you’re just starting to consider weight loss surgery or other weight loss options or are a long-hauler like me, there is a place for you at this year’s ObesityHelp Conference. Let’s come together on Sept. 15th and 16th in Costa Mesa, Ca. for a weekend of education and socializing. I hope to see you there!-OH2023 Co-Host, Yelena Kibasova
