This free, TOS pre-conference workshop has something for everyone who is in academia or anyone considering an academic path. This year, we are honored to have Dr. David Allison from the University of Alabama at Birmingham present at the workshop. Dr. Allison is an Associate Dean for Science, Director of the Nutrition Obesity Research Center and the Office of Energetics, and the Principal Investigator on several training grants. The Academic Workshop will also include a roundtable session with discussions and hands-on activities.

Finally, you can get a head start on networking at ObesityWeek with a meet-and-greet session at the Workshop with representatives from TOS’s Sections, the Early Career Member Committee and TOS Fellows.
