The Certified Obesity Educator: A vocation with a powerful purpose

The vision of the CBOE is an ever-growing number of obesity counselors certified to a current science-based standard of care.

By enabling all interested clinicians and researchers to focus on a single science-based approach to the treatment of persons with or at risk of obesity we will see the rate of the disease slow, stop, and reverse.

We envision a continuum that begins with a science-based standard of care, certifies qualified healthcare professionals to the standard, and promotes the measurement of outcomes and improved research, which in turn improves the science and the standard of care.
