On this latest webinar, World Obesity looked at the network of organisations and coalitions that have evolved to support people living with obesity. Speakers from a range of Patient Organisations across the globe were invited to discuss their journeys, the support they provide in the different regions and ideas for members interested in patient advocacy. In addition, we discussed the Global Patient Network – a recently launched initiative to provide support and resources for people living with obesity and a platform for Patient Organisations to share and amplify best practice.
