WELCOME MESSAGE BY ORGANISING CHAIRS

Welcome to the 7th OBES Congress 2022! 

Last year’s programme focused on the navigation of people living with obesity through the COVID-19 landscape together – adjusting, adapting and acclimatising to the ever-evolving challenges faced.
 
As the world emerges stronger from Covid-19 and as we face the next normal, we have chosen the theme of this year’s congress to be “Person-Centric Care in Obesity - Beyond the Scales”. This is to emphasize that the optimum care for people living with obesity differs from person to person, and as healthcare professionals we are in a privileged position to make a difference to the person before us – which certainly goes beyond a series of digits on a weighing scale.   
 
Moving beyond Covid, we maintain our unwavering commitment to advocate for people living with obesity.  We are indeed very grateful to our faculty, both local and regional, who have come together at this year's OBES Congress to share their knowledge and exchange ideas.  
 
We are pleased to announce that this year’s programme will be held as an in-person event, at the Novotel Singapore on Stevens, and we certainly look forward to connecting with all of you in person. Join us at this annual event as we renew old friendships, create new ties, and continue to support people living with obesity through a better understanding of the multitude of challenges they constantly face. 
 
On behalf of the organizing committee, we sincerely hope you will enjoy the program we have planned for you!
