Obesity Medicine Doctors encouraged by Surgeon General’s pledge to focus on obesity

The American Society of Bariatric Physicians (ASBP) is hopeful that the appointment of Dr. Vivek Murthy to U.S. surgeon general will lead to greater awareness about the role of obesity medicine clinicians in health care.  Since the American Medical Association declared obesity as a disease in 2013, Obesity Medicine physicians have been lobbying to improve awareness and increase the likelihood that patients will seek assistance from their doctors.
