Meet the Canadians

Last night, the Canadian Obesity Network once again hosted a “Meet the Canadians” reception at the European Congress of Obesity in Geneva.

Once again, attendance was surprisingly enthusiastic.

As pointed out by Francois Laberge, Counseller and Consul, Canadian Embassy, Berne, Canada stands in high regard both as a destination for trainees but also for highly-qualified immigrants seeking to work in research and health care.

I was personally most happy to see so many Canadian and International CON members at the reception, including several CON Students and New Professionals.

No question, there is a growing and well respected Obesity research community in Canada that is making its mark at international meetings like ECO.

CON certainly does its part to help shine the spotlight on obesity research and expertise from Canada.
