The Future of Bariatric Surgery ScholarshipReturn to Scholarship Search
Scholarship Purpose: More than one out of every three people in the U.S. are considered obese, which is taking a massive toll on the health and quality of life for people with obesity and on the nationâs healthcare costs. Bariatric surgery dramatically improves and often cures many serious health conditions for people with morbid obesity, including diabetes, asthma, cardiac conditions, sleep apnea, and many others. Within 2 years after surgery, it also reduces total healthcare costs by about $11,000 per year, per patient.
