This keynote session will bring light to a prevalent issue in retired athletes that is not often addressed: obesity. Together, experienced surgeons and former NFL players will tackle the problem at hand.

Speakers will address the aging professional athlete and health studies in former athletes. You’ll also hear about weight and diet as well as weight and surgery from a player’s perspective.

Be sure to stop by ObesityWeek Backstage in the Exhibit Hall from 12:00pm to 1:30pm to meet and greet and take a photo with keynote speakers Henry Buchwald, MD, PhD and Arthur Roberts, MD and former NFL Athletes Corey Louchiey and James Thornton.
