Tampa, Fla. – Given the continued concern around the impact of Covid-19 and people with obesity, along with the uncertainties surrounding travel-related activities, we have made the prudent decision to once again go virtual for our 2021 National Convention. We will host this year’s meeting – YWM2021- VIRTUAL – July 17 – July 25. Our schedule will include live event programming activities on both weekends, with special events taking place throughout the week.

Although we are unable to gather in-person, we are committed to bringing the latest science-based education, resources and tools with a community of support to individuals struggling with their weight and health. During YWM2020 – VIRTUAL, we were able to attract more than 2,500 individuals from 59 different countries and with such a successful event series, we decided to expand our program this year making this virtual event an even more immersive educational experience.

We look forward to further developing YWM2021 – VIRTUAL and announcing our schedule and speakers at a later date. For more information regarding YWM2021 – VIRTUAL, please visit YWMConvention.com.
