Students/New Pros 2020-12-07T13:29:16-05:00

The Obesity Canada Students and New Professionals (OC-SNP) initiative links more than 1,200 undergraduate-, Master’s-, doctoral- and postdoctoral-level students and new professionals (within five years of completing their last degree) in academia, industry, healthcare and government agencies across Canada.

To provide students and new professionals the forum to build, maintain, and refine networking and professional development skills that are integral in pursuing a career related to obesity in academic, community, and/or industry settings, as well as advance awareness of Obesity Canada.

OC-SNP has local chapters in post-secondary institutions across the country, each working to increase membership across disciplines and advance awareness of Obesity Canada and its mission. To achieve these goals, local OC-SNP members organize a variety of initiatives: journal clubs, conferences, guest lectures from internationally-renown speakers, public outreach events on popular obesity-related topics, fundraisers and physical activity events/challenges at their local institutions.
