Welcome Message by Organising Chairs

Dear Friends,

Our ongoing campaign against the obesity pandemic has been beset by many new challenges – not least the COVID-19 pandemic, which has imposed restrictions and distancing amongst us and between us and our patients. In this era of unprecedented challenges and constant flux, we now have the duty to continuously innovate and update ourselves. Nonetheless, both OMSSS and SASO pledge to continue advocating for the needs of people living with obesity and delivering the highest standards of care to them.

In our 5th year running, the OBES Congress 2020 will take place on 10 and 17 October 2020 completely online, with the theme, The Roots of Obesity in the COVID-19 Pandemic Era. With the clash between the COVID-19 and obesity pandemics, we hope to learn from our experts about the interplay between these 2 pandemics, their experiences with managing obesity in the era of COVID-19, and the updates in both medical and surgical management of obesity.

We hope this inaugural meeting environment will serve to keep us all safe yet engaged in our exchange of learning.

Thank you for your support in making our OBES Congress 2020 Online a great success and we look forward to “meeting” you!
