    Invitation to ECOG 32nd Congress

    Dear Colleague,

    It is our pleasure to invite you to the 32nd European Childhood Obesity Group Annual Congress.
    The congress will take place from the 7th to the 9th of September, in Albena, a city on the Black Sea coast of Bulgaria not far from the Romanian border, approximately 40km from Varna Airport and just a few minutes from the popular Golden Sands resort. Surrounded by lush forests, Albena’s main attraction is its magnificent, wide, 5km long beach with very fine and clean sand.

    This year’s congress aims to bring together childhood obesity experts and young scientists from across Europe. The scientific programme will approach the multidisciplinary nature of childhood obesity prevention and treatment, covering the following aspects: prevention programmes and tools, dietary interventions in childhood obesity, physical activity and screen time, psycho-social aspects of childhood obesity, pharmacotherapy and bariatric surgery in children. This will be presented by international experts.
    At ECOG 2023, you will be able to network, discuss and exchange information with colleagues who share your interests. Students and early-career scientists will have a chance to learn from and share their experiences with practitioners.

    You will find more information about the scientific and organising committees, scientific and social programmes, congress venue and accommodation and fees on the ECOG website.

    We look forward to meeting you at the conference and if, in the meantime, you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

    Yours sincerely,

    Teodora Handjieva-Darlenska, MD, PhD
    President-Elect ECOG Congress 2023
