Targeting obesity: educational symposia to advance management
One in every three adults in the world is now overweight or obese. Many of the people affected want to control their weight but, when they try to change their diet and take exercise, early reductions in body weight are mostly not maintained over time. Consequently, many people are left at increased risk of multiple obesity-related complications, as well as having impaired quality-of-life and reduced life expectancy. In this ongoing programme of symposia, we will consider the mechanisms through which weight is controlled and how they can be targeted to promote weight loss and prevent weight regain, and so improve outcomes for people who are affected by overweight or obesity.
