Founded in 1982, The Obesity Society (TOS) is the leading professional society focused on obesity science, treatment and prevention. Our approximately 2,800 members worldwide are people like you, ranging from early career to established members of the field, including basic and clinical researchers, clinicians and care providers, educators, early career investigators and students. Everything the Society does is done by and for people like you. Every action we take supports professionals in the obesity field and people who are impacted by obesity around the globe. Whatever your perspective—scientific, clinical, public health, economic, personal or any other—you are dealing every day with an intractable worldwide epidemic. You know, as we do, that obesity affects individuals, families, friends and neighbors, and countless communities and societies everywhere. Our Society has been charged with advancing the science-based understanding of the causes, consequences, prevention and treatment of obesity. In other words, it’s our mission to help people like you continue your indispensable efforts.
