Connected 2023 Virtual Conference March 4, 2023

 11:00 am – 6:00 pm Eastern

Obesity Canada has been a global leader in patient engagement and empowerment due to our unique ability to connect people living with obesity with each other, leading experts, academics and health professionals working in the area of evidence-based obesity management. From our private online peer support community OC-Connect, where individuals living with obesity can find a community of peers to share and support one another while getting access to reputable, evidence-based information on obesity, to our Connected Conversations monthly webinar series, Obesity Canada is bridging the gap between patients/public  and the health professionals/experts. 

The Connected 2023 public conference is another way individuals living with obesity can engage with leading experts in the field of obesity management in an interactive and informative way.
