Obesity and Weight Management

Department of Obesity and Weight Management

The Department of Obesity and Weight Management has been the driving force of CCH since the college was established. The main focus of this department is to explore the complexities of obesity and excess weight, educate the healthcare professionals to enable them to be confident and effective in delivering obesity care, and ultimately to reverse the obesity epidemic.
