Spotlight on EASO President
Dr Nathalie Farpour-Lambert

Dr Nathalie Farpour-Lambert, paediatrician, child obesity expert and head of the Obesity Prevention and Care Program Contrepoids, University Hospitals of Geneva, Switzerland, became the new President of the European Association for Study of Obesity (EASO) during ECO2018.

East Med Train the Trainer

Obesity is a key challenge to public health in Europe and the east Mediterannean region, however specialised obesity training is not widely available. Obesity care and public health strategies can therefore vary enormously across these regions. EASO education programmes provide a solution by offering comprehensive training for health professionals working in the prevention and management of obesity.

We will host a Train the Trainers session 23-24 September, 2018 at the Polat Renaissance Hotel Istanbul, Turkey. Applications are now closed but follow EASO news for future course offerings.
