Meeting Objectives

The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) and the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) are sponsoring a workshop on long-term outcomes of bariatric surgery. The purpose of this workshop is to review the current state-of-the-science in regards to long-term outcomes of bariatric surgery, determine critical gaps in understanding, and strategize about methods to leverage existing clinical studies to fill those gaps. A variety of stakeholders are being invited to the workshop to present their viewpoints. This will be a 1.5-day workshop to be held May 22-23, 2013, on the NIH campus in Bethesda, Maryland.
