19th European Congress on Obesity

ECO 2012

The European Congress on Obesity has been organized since 1988, when it was held in Stockholm. Nowadays, the congress is one of the most important events in this field, which gathers thousands of delegates each year.

In May 2012, experts from around the world gathered in Lyon for the 19th European Congress on Obesity, hosted by the European Association for the Study of Obesity (EASO). Global rates of obesity are rising rapidly, making the management and prevention of obesity and obesity-related disorders a top priority for government and public health initiatives. The programme drew over 2,500 participants from more than 80 countries and covered a range of obesity-related topics, including environment and prevention, genes, and clinical practice and management.
