 2018 Canadian Obesity Student Meeting (COSM) Conference June 20-22, 2018


The Canadian Obesity Network is holding its 6th Canadian Obesity Student Meeting, known as COSM. The meeting will not only highlight important advances in obesity research but will also provide important opportunities for new professionals and trainees from across Canada to present findings and network with their peers. 

The event will host 200 fellow young researchers and health professionals for three-four days of learning, networking and sharing information on all aspects of obesity. This multidisciplinary conference would be organized by the local CON-SNP chapter with guidance and support from the Canadian Obesity Network (www.obesitynetwork.ca). The presentations and discussions will range from cellular and molecular biology to childhood obesity, primary intervention, and population health. However, the primary purpose of this meeting is to enhance student growth and development. Organized by students, for students, this conference will give trainees the opportunity to showcase their work. Participants will come from across Canada, the USA and overseas. Open to 200 MSc/PhD students, young researchers, clinical fellows, clinical researchers and young health professionals in their last, or within five years of, completing their training.
