Why You Need To Be At The 6th Canadian Obesity Summit in Ottawa, April 23-26

Your’s truly jamming with Nick Hayes (dr) and Cody Wright (ba) at Keeping The Blues Alive At Sea V

Last week, I was on a “Blues Cruise” that featured some of the best blues musicians in the world, and, as evidenced by this image, I actually got to jam with some of the best! Now, I’m back, fully recharged and ready to work on my own playing with tons of new ideas and heaps of motivation.

Bottom line, if you’re really passionate about something, you want to be where the action is, so you can learn from and network with the best of the best.

So if obesity is your topic – you most certainly do not want to miss the upcoming 6h Canadian Obesity Summit, which only comes around every two years – as you would guess, a lot happens in two years!

This year’s Canadian Obesity Summit features well over 200 oral and poster presentations on every conceivable topic from health policy and prevention to pre-clinical and clinical obesity research, as well as updates on current obesity treatments for children and adults living with obesity – all presented by leading Canadian scientists and clinicians from coast to coast.

But, there is more! The Summit also features interactive workshops on a wide range of topics, including, how to make your hospital or clinic “bariatric friendly”, how to approach “behaviour change” in children and adults, and how to manage excess weight gain during pregnancy.

The Summit will also present Obesity Canada’s first national Public Obesity Workshop, aimed at Canadians living with obesity and policy makers.

But, perhaps most important of all (as anyone, who has ever been to a Canadian Obesity Summit is well aware), the Summit is your opportunity to meet, catch-up, and mingle (not to mention party!) with your colleagues from across Canada and beyond.

Pre-registration at reduced rates for individuals and groups is open till March 14 – hotel space is already tight – so don’t wait – this is not getting better!

If I learn half as much about the latest developments in obesity at the Summit as I learnt about the blues on the cruise, the four days will be well spent – be there or be square!
