PREVENTIVE HEALTH CONFERENCE – ACCELERATING COOPERATION TO STOP OVERWEIGHT AND OBESITY
The Institute for Preventive Health (i4PH) would like to invite you to the conference ‘Accelerating cooperation to stop overweight and obesity’ on 23 November 2022.
It’s is one of the world’s major public health problems: the obesity pandemic. We can only stop it by working on prevention in several places at the same time: at school, at work, in the neighbourhood and in health care. Therefore we, experts from different disciplines need to work together. But what are the most effective solutions we should be working on? And how to find the right partners and funding for such projects? Let’s find the answers together at this conference!
During this conference you will:
- hear all about the biggest challenges in schools, neighbourhoods, work, and healthcare,
- get to work on solutions to the biggest challenges,
- get a chance to win seed funding from i4PH for research projects,
- meet various experts, from scientists from TU/e, WUR, UU and UMC Utrecht to practitioners (all stakeholders are represented).
