ASMBS CBN Library Disclosure Statement
It is the policy of the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery that speakers and/or anyone in control of content of a CME Category 1 event must disclose any financial or other relationship with (1) any manufacturer(s) of commercial products that may be discussed in the speaker’s presentation and/or (2) commercial supporters of the event.  The intent of this policy is to disclose any significant financial interest or other relationship, including the nature of the relationship that could bias the speaker or program designer.  If the ASMBS determines that a conflict of interest exists, then ASMBS will seek resolution which may include change in topics, discussion, and/or faculty.  Should a conflict exist with a program planner, the resolution will involve their non-participation in the decision-making process and/or removal from the committee.
