European Obesity Day
All over Europe
The aim is to increase knowledge and understanding of the need for action at both European and national levels to improve prevention, treatment and care. At the same time, the campaign supports European citizens who are overweight or have obesity to make lifestyle changes to manage their weight and improve their overall health and quality of life.
Although European Obesity Day is a recognised international awareness day, the activities and initiatives that take place around it are just as important. These include events held at local, national and international level held in the lead up to EOD and many which will continue afterwards.One of the events being held in conjunction with European Obesity Day will be a European Policy Conference in Brussels on Thursday, May 16 on the Social and Economic Impact of Preventing and Treating Obesity.
Speakers include representatives of OECD, WHO, the European Commission, EU Member States, academia, and EU disease and therapeutic associations. Further details and registration are available here.
