“Obesity should be given much greater attention by European governments, policymakers and healthcare providers. I would like to see a reduction in obesity stigma and more being done to help prevent obesity and to provide care and treatment for those who are already overweight or who have obesity.”
You can also get others involved in European Obesity Day by organising events of your own.
