About the Washington Obesity Society

We’re a group of physicians, nurse practitioners, and other healthcare professionals committed to providing people with compassionate, innovative, and best-in-class care in their pursuit of health.

We’ve come together to support each other in this shared commitment to and passion for the treatment of obesity.

We recognize that in a complex and rapidly evolving field, we’re all at the beginning of our learning journeys. Together, we will advance as individuals and as a community, with shared resources, learning, and support. We welcome you to join us.
