Do you know by the year 2030 it is predicted that 89% of males and 85% of females in Ireland will be overweight or obese? This is a serious situation and these trends are also seen worldwide. So, what are we going to do about this? The European Association for the Study of Obesity (EASO) recently offered 15 funded places to obesity experts across Europe to apply for, so that we can share our knowledge and skills, and work together to create the best possible solution for weight loss and improving health. I am absolutely delighted to say that I was awarded one of these places, and I am so excited to go to France on Saturday for this course. It will be fantastic to meet all the experts giving the course and taking the course with me. I am very excited about all of us working together to achieve the common goal of improving the health of our nations. I am really looking forward to learning lots of great things from different experts, and bringing this knowledge back with me to use in our weight loss and health clinic in the MediCentre, and in our True Transformation programmes. As part of this we have been asked to design a 12 month plan to transfer our knowledge and skills to you, so if you are interested in weight loss and health please do keep an eye on our posts and blogs, and the practical programmes for same. The course is taking place in Les Pensiers Conference Centre. I just had a look at the centre and it’s not a bad place to go to work!
This is a fantastic initiative by the EASO and I am thrilled to be part of it. I feel a lot of inspiration coming on 😊. I’ll send updates over the next week on the course itself and our future plans.
Yours in health,
Dr Diane Cooper.
