ECOG, French École Nationale d'Administration (ENA) and a delegation of South Korean public health managers discuss on prevention and Childhood Obesity in Europe

8 July 2015

On June 29th 2015, ECOG hosted a workshop in Brussels to discuss childhood obesity in Europe with the French École Nationale d'Administration (ENA) and 14 South Korean public managers in the field of health care.

 

The initiative was part of a broader ENA’s training programme for the Seoul Metropolitan Government aiming to present European policies in the fields of welfare and health and share good practices.  Unfortunately, rates of childhood obesity in the Asian country are significantly increasing.

 

Dr Marie-Laure Frelut, on behalf of ECOG, led the discussion. Dr Frelut’s presentation included:

  • An overview on projects and programmes to tackle childhood obesity at an European level
  • ECOG’s history and goals with a particular focus on its educational purpose and an overview of ECOG newly launched eBook on Childhood and Adolescent Obesity available at http://ebook.ecog-obesity.eu/
  • An overview of causes and consequences of childhood obesity among European countries
