Paediatric Research in Obesity Multi-modal Intervention and Service Evaluation

The PROMISE Programme aims to improve the assessment and treatment of childhood obesity through research addressing key gaps in the evidence base supporting the NICE childhood obesity treatment pathway and to build a coherent programme of clinical and public health research that significantly contributes towards improving the treatment of childhood obesity in the NHS.

Findings from the PROMISE programme and next steps for treatments of obesity in children and young people

Wednesday 17th June, 1pm-5.20pm Kennedy lecture Theatre UCL Institute of Child Health, 30 Guilford Street, London WC1N 1EH

We would like to invite you to join us for a national symposium examining the findings of the PROMISE programme and what they mean for UK actions on child and adolescent obesity. Researchers, policy makers, practitioners and young people will present and share their views during the event.

The symposium will also examine the implications of PROMISE findings for public health and policy, for clinical practice and for the research community as we step up our responses to the obesity epidemic.
