Symposium Proceedings

The goal of this national symposium was to bring forward inter-professional perspectives and evidence to explore current prevention and treatment strategies in the childhood obesity epidemic in Canada.

The symposium explored:

  • Obesity – a chronic and irreversible disease?
  • Risk management;
  • What is making a difference?
  • What are we missing?
  • How can we be part of the solution?

The symposium was made possible through the support and partnership of the Public Health Agency of Canada.
