Childhood obesity – a window of opportunity for action

The World Obesity Federation Childhood Obesity Atlas predicts that by 2030, 254m children aged 5-19 years old will be living with obesity. The overall objective of this event is to advance knowledge on how to effectively treat and manage obesity and overweight in this age group. Speakers will also expand on the prevention of childhood obesity, as swift action is needed to reverse these trends and prevent progression of obesity, alongside associated NCDs later down the life course. With a focus on the global problem, we will also focus on regional spotlights, specifically India, one of the countries currently experiencing the so-called ‘Double Burden of Malnutrition’. 

 

The SCOPE School supplements the SCOPE E-Learning modules, ‘Childhood Obesity: From Diagnosis to Treatment’, a six-module learning path developed in partnership with the European Childhood Obesity Group’.

 

By the end of the event you will

  • Understand the global prevalence of child and adolescent obsity.
  • Recognise the behavioural risk factors for excess weight gain in this age group.
  • Understand the role of nutrition and physical activity in the management of child and adolescent obesity.
  • Understand a range of strategies for the prevention of childhood obesity
  • Discuss country specific challenges and clinical scenarios encountered during diagnosis and treatment.
