To mark World Obesity Day, The Obesity Collective will host their fourth annual Rapid Talks series. The theme this year is Changing Perspectives: Let’s talk about obesity
Misconceptions about obesity lead to harmful shame and blame and minimise efforts to address obesity as a complex systems issue that needs coordinated action across all levels of society. This World Obesity Day’s theme challenges us to change the narrative around obesity by addressing these misconceptions.
The virtual Rapid Talks event will run for 90-minutes with a range of expert speakers from across Australia. You can see the current speaker line-up here. Each talk runs for 4-5 minutes providing you with a diversity of viewpoints.
Register for the event here.
We do realise that this is a public holiday in Western Australia but we hope that you can find some time to join in this very important conversation.
