10th Annual Obesity Summer Boot Camp

delta lodge at kananaskisHard to believe, but this weekend I am off to my 10th annual Canadian Obesity Network Summer Boot Camp – once again in Kananaskis in the Canadian Rockies.

As every year, I look forward to spending 9 days with an enthusiastic bunch of young obesity researchers and professionals as well as my faculty colleagues, who will teach about everything from genetics and molecular biology to public health and clinical management.

More importantly, the intense networking involved in this event, as in the past, should lead to a lasting network of professional friendship across disciplines, research interests and countries.

I am certain that the almost 300 alumni of this camp can attest to how much this experience has influenced their thinking and professional development.

Thanks to all at the Canadian Obesity Network, who make this annual event possible.
