Upcoming World Obesity Events
Hot Topic 2017: Obesity and Reproduction – the Cradle of the Epidemic

The rise of obesity in developed countries, including among women of reproductive age, means that the discussion of obesity’s impact on pregnancy could not be more relevant or crucial. 

This two-day event offers an attractive balance between basic science, translational research and clinical practice. Topics such as the merit of obesity interventions during pregnancy will be discussed, and we will hear about new policy regarding pregnancy. We will further delve into the often poorly-understood factors that affect the embryo in obese pregnancy, and find out about the long term consequences of maternal obesity for mother and child. Our international panel of renowned experts will present their current findings on these diverse topics and integrate them to provide a better understanding of obesity and pregnancy altogether.

Renowned faculty include: Roland Devlieger, Dilys Freeman, Patrick Catalano, Katrien Benhalima, Darmintra Pasupathy, Nicola Abate, Nicola Heslehurst and others to join soon.

Details on the programme, speakers, sponsorship, exhibition and registration can be found here.

Getting Obesity on the Agenda

World Obesity taking action to ensure obesity is included in key meetings and sessions on Noncommunicable Diseases and global health

The World Obesity Federation has been invited to present on the critical role of obesity in overall NCDs at several recent meetings, with President Ian Caterson, President-Elect Donna Ryan, CEO Johanna Ralston and Director of Policy Tim Lobstein presenting at sessions including the International Congress on Obesity and Metabolic Syndrome in Seoul, European Association for the Study of Diabetes in Lisbon, the German Obesity Society meeting in Potsdam, the World Health Summit in Berlin, the WHO Global Noncommunicable Disease Meeting in Montevideo, and World Economic Forum meetings at the UN General Assembly and in Geneva.

These events ensure that our shared message of addressing obesity as one of the most pressing public health issues the world is facing is incorporated into broader global health agendas at a time when there are windows open to influence policies and health systems.

EASO Patient Council Spotlight:
Barbara Andersen of Austria 

"My role as a patient representative is a new one, I joined this year (2017).  There is a lot to learn and to do - to build up a community, to connect with hospitals, doctors, health system and to inform patients about all options around bariatric surgery and obesity, to creating a platform or develop a social media group and so on ....but this is still a work in progress!"

Systems Thinking and Obesity:
Meet Bruce Y Lee 

"If you just try to tell people to improve their diets, what if they are surrounded by unhealthy food and people who eat unhealthy food? If you just try to reduce fat in foods, what if they eat more sugar, salt, and artificial ingredients? If you tell people to exercise more, what if they don't have access to parks or running trails or can't afford to play sports? This is just a small sample of how complex a problem obesity is, since your genetics, biology, behaviors, family, friends, co-workers, environment, financial situation, and many other systems affect your weight."
