Let’s Talk Obesity was the launch event for Obesity Canada, Hamilton Chapter. The theme of the event was to educate the public about what obesity is and the different aspects and experiences of living with obesity. The night began with an introduction of OC and the goals for the Hamilton region as the local chapter. The highlight of the event was an engaging presentation by Dr. Megha Poddar on Redefining Our Goals in Obesity Management. It was capped off with an interesting facilitated discussion and an opportunity for the attendees to network.
OC members discussed future events and spoke out the need for the inclusion of patient-focused experiences and dialogue to provide a voice for them and start discussions between health professionals and community members.
