Obesity is recognised as a priority health challenge in Europe, however evidence-based multidisciplinary obesity training is not widely available. This has led to wide disparities in obesity care and public health strategies used to address obesity, which varies enormously across the European region. To address this, EASO education programmes offer comprehensive training designed for European health professionals working in obesity prevention and management.

The Masterclass will run from Monday, 16th September to 18th September 2024 in Budapest, Hungary.

Teaching at the Masterclass will be delivered via lectures, group discussions and workshops. EASO will offer up to 50 places for this prestigious course. There is no registration fee and EASO will provide hotel accommodation and meals for successful applicants. Candidates will need to cover their own travel to Budapest.
