Experts gathering in Auckland this week have one health concern firmly in their sights: Australasia’s obesity epidemic.
The Australia and New Zealand Obesity Society Annual Scientific Meeting is designed to bring together clinicians, scientists, policy makers and patients to work toward an integrated approach to improve the management and prevention of obesity in Australasia, and is taking place over the next three days in Auckland.
The Science Media Centre held a briefing with some of the delegates, which you can view here.
The media have reported on several research findings presented at the meeting, and more coverage can be expected over the next few days.
