The American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) Foundation’s Walk from Obesity is the only national walkathon that brings attention to the disease of obesity by raising awareness in communities all over the country. The Walk from Obesity also provides educational materials regarding obesity and the treatment options available.
