Additionally, Academic researchers receive a discounted rate of 30%.

Demand for more information on products and services addressing the country’s growing obesity epidemic has prompted the Congress to open its sessions to healthcare providers and payors. Primary Care providers and Healthcare executives wishing to attend the event may contact the organizer to determine their eligibility for the discounted rate of $995.00. Academic Researchers receive the discounted rate of $1295.00.

Also Being Expanded is the Session on: U.S. Guidelines, Red Flags and Advertising Trends

A 2004 FTC staff report showed that the number of advertisements making obviously false weight-loss claims fell to just 15 percent in 2004, but the problem still remains. This expanded session will help companies understand the guidelines, red flags and advertising trends for weight-loss products. Companies seeking ways to navigate the difficult regulatory waters cannot afford to miss this presentation. The session will be presented in a lively, roundtable format with a panel of industry, science, regulatory and legal experts.
