    • Community weight management programs with a focus on children with severe obesity
    • Primary care office interventions for children with severe obesity
    • Updates to anticipatory guidance to include evidence-based obesity interventions
  • Three types of abstracts are encouraged: Original Research abstracts presenting original research findings; Program abstracts describing ongoing or completed projects; or Quality Improvement projects.
  • Special consideration will be given to those abstracts submitted by physicians in training at any level.
  • Abstracts will be accepted for poster presentations only.
