We are very honored and excited to welcome you to the Nordic Obesity Meeting, this year organized by the Danish Association for the Study on Obesity. The meeting will take place the 17-19 November 2022 in Copenhagen, Denmark. The conference will bring together medical doctors, dieticians, health care professionals, and multidisciplinary researchers engaged in obesity research.

Preceding the Nordic Obesity Meeting, and as part of the meeting, we will hold an educational day on obesity, which will reflect ‘Perspectives on obesity management’ with topics spanning from diet, exercise, technological behavioral interventions, pharmacology, obesity surgery, weight neutral approaches, obesity stigma to prevention strategies.

The Nordic Obesity Meeting on ‘Novel insight on obesity biology, prevention and management strategies will cover talks on obesity and metabolism, key genetic and non-genetic determinants of body weight regulation including early life risk factors, postpartum weight retention and sleep, and cutting-edge research in human brown adipose tissue, very low calory diet, constitutional thinness and weight gain resistance. The meeting also gives young investigators the opportunity to present their research findings.
