Mentorship Program

Mentorship Program

Participate in the mentorship program, where we pair experienced clinicians (mentors) with a small group of mentees to meet with throughout the conference. This exclusive benefit of membership allows clinicians newer to obesity medicine to ask questions, get advice, and build their network. Many mentors and mentees even stay in touch after the conference. To participate, sign up as a mentor or mentee on your registration form.
