The obesity epidemic continues to grow worldwide. In recognition of these statistics and the link between obesity and the endocrine system, the Endocrine Society (ES), the European Society for Endocrinology (ESE) and the International Society for Endocrinology (ISE) joined together to co-sponsor a symposium during the recent 7th International Congress of Endocrinology. The symposium, titled “You might think you know, by why do we actually have an obesity epidemic?” was held on Friday, September 2, 2016 in Beijing, China.
Three talks talks are featured in the session recording below:
Epigenetic Facts in the Genesis and Complications of Obesity Epidemics
Homeostatic and Non-Homeostatic Control of Weight – Which Wins?
Obesity, Diabetes and Hypertension in China
The next joint session will take place in May 2017 during the European Congress of Endocrinology in Lisbon, Portugal, with the third installment following in April 2018 in Chicago, USA during ENDO 2018.
