We were honored to be invited to present patient data at this year’s #ObesityWeek2017 in Washington D.C.
Our Co-founder, Dr Jessica Barnes, made the trip down to the capitol to present a case study. This is the second year 20Lighter has been invited to share program data at ObesityWeek. The meeting is a fantastic opportunity to network with colleagues and vendors, a great trip all around!
We were the only New England area weight loss center invited to present data, it was an honor to attend and be in such great company, and they had the best credentials! (note the Halloween theme) 🙂
