Rising to the Challenge of Obesity and Diabetes: Zurich virtual conference, free access

The Fixing Metabolic Health conference will bring together experts to share their research on the mechanisms and root causes of insulin resistance and metabolic ill-health, as well as the connection to historical and current nutritional policy.

We will build on the publications and core research of Food for Thought 2023: Rising to the challenge of obesity and diabetes. Understanding practically how interventions achieve success, looking at the evidence of their outcomes, and being aware of the challenges they face in changing lifestyle behaviours, especially nutrition, are important for health systems, providers and payers considering implementing such programmes.

Finally, some of the trailblazing psychiatrists and researchers focusing on metabolic health and its impact on the brain will share insights, including using metabolic health as part of their clinical interventions.

Monday October 9th: 

Fixing Metabolic Health, with a special focus on Mental Health!

8:30 am Central European time / 2:30 am Eastern U.S. time / 5:30 pm Sydney time (AEDT).
