Memorial of Dra. Alicia Recalde, President of SUEO
We recently received the very sad news that Dra. Alicia Reclade, President of our National Associaiton Member in Uruguay, the Sociedad Uruguaya para el Estudio de la Obesidad, had passed away.

Her colleagues at SUEO are very grateful that they were able to share time with her and appreciate her professional commitment, and above all enjoy her friendship and human warmth. They shared the following with World Obesity:

Besides being a Medical Doctor specialised in Toxicology, she had obtained a Master degree in Nutrition and had also specialised in the study of Body Composition.

Throughout her life she took part in multiple publications  such as ENSO 1 (Encuesta Nacional de Sobrepeso y Obesidad 1), ENSO 2 (Encuesta Nacional de Sobrepeso y Obesidad 2) and ENSO  Niños (Encuesta Nacional de Sobrepeso y Obesidad en niños) among others, that  were benchmarks studies  in the assessment of the prevalence of overweight and obesity in Uruguay.
     
We are very grateful that we have been able to share time with her and  appreciate her professional commitment, and above all enjoy her friendship and human warmth.

Alicia has left us physically, but she will stay forever in the heart of every one of us.

RD Daniel Prendez RD                                     RD Beatriz Babic MSc                           
President                                                           Past President      

We would like to offer our sincere condolences and her family, friends and colleagues are in our thoughts at this difficult time.
Dr Cristina Parrino Awarded SCOPE Fellowship
We are delighted to announce that Dr Cristina Parrino, based in Denmark, has been awarded a SCOPE National Fellowship.

Upcoming World Obesity Events
Hot Topic 2017: Obesity and Reproduction – the Cradle of the Epidemic


The rise of obesity in developed countries, including among women of reproductive age, means that the discussion of obesity’s impact on pregnancy could not be more relevant or crucial. 

This two-day event offers an attractive balance between basic science, translational research and clinical practice. Topics such as the merit of obesity interventions during pregnancy will be discussed, and we will hear about new policy regarding pregnancy. We will further delve into the often poorly-understood factors that affect the embryo in obese pregnancy, and find out about the long term consequences of maternal obesity for mother and child. Our international panel of renowned experts will present their current findings on these diverse topics and integrate them to provide a better understanding of obesity and pregnancy altogether.

The list of faculty include: Roland Devlieger, Dilys Freeman, Patrick Catalano, Katrien Benhalima, Darmintra Pasupathy, Nicola Abate, Nicola Heslehurst and others to join soon

The Core Learning Path will be available for only £70, and will be free to users with existing SCOPE subscriptions. In addition, we will offer discounts to World Obesity members and users from low-and-middle income countries. Watch this space for more information!
ICO/ECO 2020 to be Held in Dublin
In 2020, we will host our first joint meeting with EASO, combining ICO and ECO. This is a very exciting initiative for World Obesity, EASO and all of our member organisations.

We can now reveal that the meeting will take place in Dublin, Republic of Ireland.

More details will follow - keep checking the Events Page on our website for more information.
Theme for World Obesity Day 2017 Revealed
The theme for this year's World Obesity Day 2017 will be "Treat Obesity Now and Avoid the Consequences Later".

On current trends, 2.7 billion adults worldwide will suffer from overweight and obesity by 2025, of which 177 million adults will be in need of treatment as a result of severe obesity.   Untreated, obesity is responsible for a significant proportion of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) including heart disease, diabetes, liver disease and many types of cancer. If we don’t tackle obesity the medical bill for treating the diseases that follow directly from obesity is expected to reach US$1.2 trillion per year by 2025.  Investing in the prevention, management and treatment of obesity is a cost-effective action for governments and health services. Investment can help achieve the 2025 targets set by the World Health Organization to halt the rise in obesity and to achieve a 25% relative reduction in mortality from NCDs.  

This #WorldObesityDay on the 11th October, we are calling on all governments, health service providers, insurers and philanthropic organisations to prioritise investment in tackling obesity. This means investing in obesity treatment services, early intervention and prevention.

You can now view our calls for action for World Obesity Day 2017 on our website. We will soon be uploading more resources and information on how you can get involved. Please save the date and join us in calling for action to treat obesity now and avoid the consequences later!

Chilean Physicians Take SCOPE E-learning
100 physicians in Chile recently subscribed to take SCOPE e-learning in Spanish. An event was held in Satiago at which Dr Ada Cuevas, a member of our Clinical Care Committee, introduced the physicians to the course. Dr Cuevas commented:

"The certification for 100 Chilean physicians by the SCOPE program is very important, because overweight and obesity are affecting 39% and 27% of the adult population respectively. We must urge them to implement the best strategies for the prevention and treatment of this condition."

SCOPE e-learning is available in Spanish, French and Portuguese. To find out more, visit our website.
SCOPE School Athens Report

SCOPE School Athens 2017 took place on June the 3rd and was undoubtedly very successful. More than 120 participants had the opportunity to attend an interactive course covering practically all major aspects of the obesity epidemic, from epidemiology to treatment.

The event was a one day “primer”, at which Dr. Stavros Liatis first discussed the epidemiological data regarding Greece and the rest of the world, followed by Dr. Alexander Miras, who explored various aspects regarding the etiology of obesity, and Professor Carel le Roux, who explored the mechanisms of hunger and satiety. The comorbidities of obesity were presented in detail by Professor Vaia Lambadiari, while Professor Antony Leeds discussed meal replacements, Dr. Alexander Kokkinos drug therapy, and Mr. Dimitri Pournaras bariatric surgery.

The format of the event encouraged questions and extensive discussion, and many controversies were explored. Finally, participants had the opportunity to mingle and discuss among themselves, exhibitors and with the faculty during the refreshment and lunch breaks in an informal and cordial atmosphere. Special thanks go to our sponsors: Cambridge Weight Plan, Valeant, Novo Nordisk and Boehringer Ingelheim, all of whom have contributed to its success.

This year’s success makes it quite possible that similar events will be held in Greece in the future.

There is still time to register for our next SCOPE School, taking place in London on 13th June.

 300 Endocrinologists Attend Our Child Obesity Symposium
Over 300 members of the European Society for Endocrinology attended a symposium on childhood obesity in Lisbon in May, in an event jointly supported by the World Obesity Federation, the European Association for the Study of Obesity, and the European Society for Paediatric Endocrinology. The symposium included presentations on community interventions (Prof Hollie Raynor), genetic markers for obesity (Prof Sadaf Farooqi), and the need for population-wide policies to reduce the obesogenicity of modern environments (WOF’s Prof Tim Lobstein). Discussion included questions on the sustainability of interventions and the need to define obesity as a disease in order to reduce stigma.

POLICY NEWS IN BRIEF
From World Obesity
25th May 2017
/ Policy Watch...
/ World Health Assembly should adopt Childhood Obesity Commission recommendations  

World Obesity, with support from the NCD Alliance, Consumers International and WCRF International, have submitted a statement to the World Health Assembly urging the adoption of the recommendations of the Commission to End Childhood Obesity, and to develop a Framework for monitoring and evaluating the implementation process. The Assembly meets this week in Geneva. Our statement is available to read here.

/ World Obesity names obesity a disease

World Obesity has publish its position statement recognising obesity as a disease, a position fully in accordance with the American Medical Association and by many of our member associations. In a Comment published alongside the statement, we argue that defining obesity as a disease does not lessen but rather increases society's responsibility to prevent excess weight gain through a range of population-wide interventions to promote optimum health. Such population-wide measures are not only important to prevent obesity  but are also integral to the treatment process by reducing the risk of weight regain for people who have successfully reduced their weight. Declaring obesity to be a disease has been recommended by many patients' organisations.  Our statement and the Comment can be downloaded here.

/ Dublin to host the 2020 joint World Obesity and EASO Congress.
 
The city of Dublin has been selected as the city to host the 2020 joint meeting of the International Congress on Obesity (ICO) and the European Congress on Obesity (ECO).

World Obesity Recognises Obesity as a Disease
Major position statement published in Obesity Reviews

This month the World Obesity Federation publishes its position statement recognising obesity as a disease. Taking the form of a review article by a group of expert advisers, published in Obesity Reviews, the position adopted by World Obesity is now fully in accordance with the position taken by the American Medical Association in 2013 and by many of the World Obesity Federation’s member associations.

In a Comment published alongside the World Obesity statement, the senior policy officers in World Obesity argue that defining obesity as a disease does not lessen but rather increases society’s responsibility to prevent excess weight gain through a range of population-wide interventions to promote optimum health. Such population-wide measures are not only important to prevent obesity, they say, but are also integral to the treatment process by reducing the risk of weight regain for people who have successfully reduced their weight.
