Obesity Week: Where Science and Treatment Meet, Boston, Massachusetts
Over 5,300 people from across the world descended on the city of Boston for Obesity Week 2014. Obesity Week is the biggest obesity conference in the world attracting a wealth of expert speakers in the obesity field. The week kicked off with a welcome reception at the Museum of Science in Boston where Obesity Week attendees had the unique opportunity to explore the 30 different exhibits and attractions, whilst also connecting with obesity professionals from across the globe. Nine allied health organisations teamed up with Obesity Week to create provocative symposia on hot topics within obesity science and management. The week was filled with presentations showcasing new elements of cutting edge science in obesity, advances in clinical management of obesity, and obesity public policy. In between presentations there was time to visit the exhibitors and learn about new products being used in the treatment of obesity which will be incorporated into our courses.
