The National Obesity Forum Annual Conference, the Royal Geographical Society, London
The National Obesity Forum held its annual conference on the 26th November at the grand Royal Geographical Society in London. CCH were delighted to accept an invitation to attend this exciting and informative event. Leading specialists in the field of obesity, lecturers and respected speakers gathered to discuss the increasing challenges that society faces in the rise of obesity.
After a warm welcome speech was delivered by the Chair of the National Obesity Forum, David Haslam, talks began of obesity in early life, primarily in pregnancy and childhood. The discussion then swiftly proceeded towards obesity in the adult body and mind, and questions such as ‘Why do we overeat?’, ‘How big is the problem?’ and ‘Which diet?’ were raised. As the conference drew to an end, the final talks considered weight management through cutting edge scientific methods and a balanced approach to exercise. Proving to be a thought provoking and highly enjoyable event, the CCH Team greatly look forward to next year’s conference.
