4th Canadian Obesity Summit

April 28-May 2, 2015
Westin Harbor Castle, Toronto, ON
Thank you to everyone who attended and supported the 4th Canadian Obesity Summit – a unique interdisciplinary conference designed to share current understanding of the causes, complications, treatments and prevention approaches for obesity! 
Please remember to fill out the conference evaluation. Your feedback is very helpful and will make future Summits even better. We are interested in what you have to say! 
For those who attended the Summit a link to the slides and videos will be sent out in June to those who opted in to receive emails from the conference. Or follow us on Twitter @CanObesityNet and we will let you know when they are up.  

For 2017, the CON will be celebrating it's 10th anniversary and the conference will be held in Banff, AB. Calls for workshops will be released this Fall along with surveys to members about hot topics and controversies in obesity they'd like to see.
