We are counting down the days until the 6th Canadian Obesity Student Meeting (COSM). The Canadian Obesity Student Meeting is a multi-disciplinary, bi-annual meeting organized by students, for students. This year, COSM will be held June 20-22, 2018 at Western University in London, Ontario, Canada with the support and collaboration of Western University, University of Alberta, and Obesity Canada.

By sharing knowledge and practical tools, COSM aims to enhance student growth and development. The meeting will focus on important advances in obesity research and provide opportunities for new professionals (5 or fewer years of completing your education) and junior researchers (e.g., student trainees, clinical fellows) from across Canada, the United States of America and overseas to present research findings and network with like-minded individuals.
