A day of engaging talks led by a panel of experts in the field of obesity.
Without doubt obesity is one of the fastest growing health epidemics in Ireland with consequences cross the life-cycle from fertility to heart disease, from diabetes to mobility in old age. Obesity Through the Life Cycle looks not just at the consequences of obesity but takes a practical approach on how we can talk to patients and guide them towards a healthy weight. We will look at obesity in childhood and how to talk to parents about their child's weight; the practical approach to advising adults on change and a focus on the impact of obesity on fertility. We will finish with nutritional guidance for patients who have undergone bariatric surgery. The conference aims to give participants the practical, take-home advice they need to help their patients of all ages work towards a healthier weight.
Lunch and refreshments included.
