We are delighted to announce the upcoming Hong Kong Obesity Society’s first World Obesity Day Patient Awareness Campaign in March 2024 . We will have 6 public lectures by specialists from various fields to share with us the updates in obesity and its complications. In addition, we have invited a qualified trainer Ms Sonia Kong who will provide teaching classes on stick mobility, a new type of exercise for training core muscles and stretching mobility. Don’t miss this opportunity.
World Obesity Day
The theme for World Obesity Day 2023 was: ‘Changing Perspectives: Let’s Talk About Obesity'. Our goal is to change perspectives: to correct misconceptions, end stigmas and get everybody making the decision to shift from single views to shared strategies.
This year, we are focusing on the simple message that ‘Everybody Needs to Act’ to improve the world’s understanding, prevention and treatment of obesity.
This year has been a great challenge for all combating obesity under COVID-19. Social distancing may seem to keep you away from everything and everybody, but we are all connected in heart. With support from everybody, we can create a happier and healthier future for everybody!
