The Making a Difference conference will bring together weight loss surgery patients, bariatric surgeons, nutritionists, cosmetic and plastic surgeons, exercise and fitness coaches, bariatric product and service vendors, and WLS social media influencers, to celebrate the WLS experience and lifestyle.
The WLSFA is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit charity that issues financial grants for weight loss surgery to people referred by a bariatric surgeon (for medical needs), but who do not have the funds to pay for it, nor insurance that covers the procedure.
“We are very excited about our 2023 conference, we have great speakers lined up, and we have the best vendors coming to show off their latest and greatest bariatric lifestyle products,” said Foundation CEO Laura Van Tuyl. “There will be something for everyone, pre-ops, post-ops, support team members, bariatric professionals.”
Van Tuyl adds, “We will have product samples, relationship-building activities, two nights of fun and ‘bling,’ a costume contest, awards, raffles, and giveaways – three days of education, motivation, and inspiration.”
Activities during the Making a Difference conference will include multiple educational breakout sessions, a 5K run/walk, a Bike with Bill bicycle ride, an Evening of Elegance, a fashion show, a Saturday night Gala Event, Starfish Awards, and much more.
