Connected Conversations

Obesity Canada is proud to announce the launch of Connected Conversations, a new webinar series hosted by patient advocates Lisa Schaffer and Ian Patton. These webinars will aim to serve our three pillars of research, education and advocacy by digging into important topics surrounding obesity. Connected Conversations will bring together academics, health professionals and individuals living with obesity for meaningful discussions that will bridge the gap between the science and real world application.  This year the focus of Connected Conversations will cover these important issues: 

  • Diet culture and its impact on understanding obesity
  • Fighting for care: obesity treatment in Canada
  • Innovating obesity care in Canada

This series is free and open to the public.
