Early Bird Registration Opens for the Canadian Obesity Summit, Vancouver, May 1-4, 2013Wednesday, October 17, 2012
Yesterday, the Canadian Obesity Network began accepting advance registrations and hotel bookings for the Canadian Obesity Summit in Vancouver next year.
For anyone, who has been at the past Canadian Obesity Summits (Kananaskis, Montreal), this event is probably already number one on your list for next year.
For anyone, who has not been to a previous Canadian Obesity Summit, you are in for a treat.
And not just for the chance to hear the latest in obesity research from across Canada (and beyond) and the opportunity to attend countless accompanying symposia on everything from maternal-fetal development and neuroscience to population health and clinical management.
No, the biggest treat is the chance to connect with Canadian researchers, health professional and policy makers across disciplines and areas of interest in the amiable and engaging spirit of the Network.
This will be your chance to meet everybody who is anybody in Canada’s obesity research, practice, and policy community.
Incidentally, the Summit ends on the day preceding the Vancouver Marathon – so you may just consider booking an extra day at the hotel – whether you intend to run or just stay to watch the fun.
See you in Vancouver!

How about a meet-and-greet or reception for the non-professionals (like me!) who are blog fans and science nerds, but not professionals, and therefore can’t afford (or justify) the expense of attending?
