Integrated Health President's Corner

Published in March Issue             

As you know, the Integrated Health Science Section recently held a special election to fill the IH President-elect position. The nominees, Nate Sann and Lisa West-Smith, are both highly qualified health care clinicians, and both would be an asset to the
IH Executive Council as IH President-elect. However, the results are in!! Please join me in congratulating Lisa as the newly elected IH President-elect. On behalf of ASMBS, congratulations and welcome to the
IH President-elect position.

On another note, ASMBS Weekend is right around the corner and will be here before you know it. The agenda is very robust, and the courses should appeal to the Integrated Health membership. Also, if you know of any nurses who are interested in becoming a Certified Bariatric Nurse, there will be a CBN review course offered at ASMBS Weekend in NYC. The dates for ASMBS Weekend are 6/14 – 6/16/18. Registration is now open, so please be sure to check the ASMBS website for registration details and links to book your room at the Intercontinental Barclay. I look forward to seeing you there.

If you were unable to attend the IH Townhall at Obesity Week, there will be an IH Townhall on 3/28/18 at 7:00 pm. The webinar will feature updates on IH committees and projects. Come join us and learn more about what IH is doing.

If you have not renewed your membership, please be sure to access your account and renew now. ASMBS members receive special access to the IH toolkit, discounts on conferences, and many other valuable perks.

As always… please feel free to contact me with any ideas, suggestions or comments for future consideration @
