European Obesity Summit 2016

eos2016This week I am attending the European Obesity Summit 2016 (EOS 2016) , in Gothenburg Sweden.

The Summit, which brings together obesity researchers, clinicians and decision makers from across Europe (and beyond) is co-hosted by the European Association for the Study of Obesity (EASO) and the European Chapter of the International Federation for the Surgery of Obesity and Metabolic Disorders (IFSO).

The 4 day program not only presents the latest in obesity research but also presents a number of workshops and symposia dealing with a wide range of topics related to obesity prevention and management.

A key feature of the program are the awards and distinctions that are bestowed upon older and newer investigators for their contributions to the advancement of obesity science.

Obviously, EOS 2016 also provides ample opportunity for networking and renewing the ties to my European friends and colleagues, many of whom I have known for many years.

I look forward to an exciting and stimulating conference.
