SCOPE School Dubai -  Focus on obesity care in the Middle East: Taking the next steps

The World Obesity Federation is excited to announce the return of our in-person SCOPE Schools.

Following on from the success of SCOPE School Global in 2020 and 2021, World Obesity returns to in-person SCOPE Schools by running the first event of the year in Dubai on 26th March 2022. This event will not be held online. 

Obesity is now considered a key public health issue in the MENA region and a risk factor for other NCDs including cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, and cancer. In the MENA region, levels of overweight and obesity have increased significantly over the past few decades. This event aims to learn about clinical approaches to prevention, including treatment barriers and strategies to ensure durable benefits for patients living with obesity.
