Chance to make a difference this World Obesity Day

Today – on World Obesity Day – healthcare professionals are being urged to sign up for a new conference featuring free CPD-accredited education from leading experts.

The Obesity & Weight Management Alliance’s inaugural conference will take place on Friday, May 17, at National Conference Centre Birmingham and is free to attend for healthcare professionals.

It will feature sessions on a wide range of topics, including the causes and consequences of obesity, weight loss and weight loss maintenance, the impact of obesity on pregnancy outcomes, type 2 diabetes and pharmacotherapy.

Event manager Emily Mayhew said: “The theme of this year’s World Obesity Day is ‘Let’s Talk About Obesity And…’ It’s hoped this will inspire people to use the power of conversation to discover how we can address obesity together.

“At the Obesity & Weight Management Alliance we’ve taken this idea to heart and have put together a programme featuring world-class speakers who will share their expert insights and knowledge with our audience. This means one of the simplest ways that healthcare professionals can make a difference this World Obesity Day is by registering for our free conference.

“Attending the conference will help healthcare professionals expand their knowledge and skillset and stay at the forefront of industry advancements.

“They will also have the chance to network with peers who share their desire to help individuals needing support with obesity and weight management challenges.”

The conference will be chaired by Professor Melanie Davies CBE, a Professor of Diabetes Medicine at the University of Leicester and an Honorary Consultant Diabetologist at the University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust. Professor Davies is Co-Director of the Leicester Diabetes Centre and has published more than 900 original articles.
