‘Overweight and obesity epidemic and how to stop it’

Registration for the third annual UCL Populations & Lifelong Health Domain Symposium is now open. 

This one-day event will showcase a university-wide cross-disciplinary approach to improving the health of the public, using obesity as an exemplar. The theme for the day will be ‘Overweight and obesity epidemic and how to stop it?’

Sessions will be focused on the 'environments' that may influence obesity or in which obesity can be addressed, in particular, the biological and the behavioural environments, the educational & occupational and built environments, and the cultural, economic and digital environments. 

Attendees will also enjoy a panel discussion session focused on: Food systems: the role of agriculture and the food industry – friend or foe?

There will also be plenty of opportunity to network with colleagues and build new collaborations.
