Obesity is one of the most challenging public health concerns of the 21st century. It is an epidemic that is sweeping Europe and about which not enough is being done.

European Obesity Day (EOD) brings people together to raise awareness and increase knowledge about obesity and the many other diseases on which it impacts.  With your support we can help to improve the prevention and treatment of obesity, ultimately improving the health and quality of life of those who are living with it.
