Why World Without Obesity?

We are an association of obesity medicine industry leaders. Through our own collection of professional and personal experiences, we’ve become passionate about raising awareness and providing solutions to global and local issues concerning obesity. WWO is founded on the ideas and principles of Dr. Michel Gagner, a pioneer and leader in the bariatric surgical field.

We raise funds to give people access to surgical interventions. The most proven and effective method of combating obesity and Type II diabetes. That’s where we come in.
