Default Food for Thought 2023: Rising to the challenge of obesity and diabetes

From Dr Georgia Ede:

Food for Thought 2023: Rising to the challenge of obesity and diabetes

Hosted by global re-insurance company Swiss Re Institute in partnership with The BMJ journal

Monday October 9 through Wednesday October 11 – Streaming Live (FREE)

THIS IS NO ORDINARY CONFERENCE, so if you have any interest in metabolic health, mental health, public health, nutrition science, nutrition policy, improving clinical outcomes, or improving insurance coverage for metabolic care, you will not want to miss this event.

What makes this meeting different?

Virtual attendance is FREE and open to EVERYONE.

Speakers and topics have been carefully chosen to efficiently and effectively bring the audience up to date on the most important developments in metabolic medicine.

For the first time this year, the event will include special emphasis on mental health. Swiss Re Chief Medical Officer Dr. John Schoonbee and I designed the mental health agenda to educate and inspire stakeholders about the promise of nutritional and metabolic approaches to mental illnesses.

The goal of the conference isn’t to preach to the choir, but to foster dialogue and respectful debate, challenge existing paradigms, and seek common ground. To help accomplish this, invited in-person guests include clinicians, scientists, thought leaders, policymakers, and health insurance professionals who hold a diversity of perspectives about the root causes of poor public health and how best to address them.

Register free for the live stream and tune in next week from wherever you are:

Monday October 9th: Fixing Metabolic Health, with a special focus on mental health
Start time: 8:30 am Central European time (2:30 am Eastern U.S. time / 5:30 pm Sydney time). Note: the mental health agenda runs from 8:20 am to 12:15 pm Eastern U.S. time.
