From the Heart of ObesityHelp, Inc.

From our hearts to yours, our ObesityHelp National Conference family proudly announces our transition to a new conference name: Bariatric Connect! In the coming months we'll be introducing a new website and social media accounts dedicated to the conference and the connections we make in the bariatric community. We are excited to continue our conference legacy by bringing you face-to-face connections with fun and supportive peers, caring healthcare professionals, and amazing product vendors.
