Welcome to the EASO Obesity Media Portal!
This information resource has been developed to provide pan-EU journalists with the most up-to-date and relevant information about obesity. It is an evolving resource which will be updated regularly as new resources and information become available. Our organisation believes that obesity is a health priority across Europe, and that media play a critical role in driving awareness and understanding of this complex, and often stigmatized disease.
On this portal you will find a variety of obesity tools and resources tailored specifically for journalists reporting on obesity. These include:
- Obesity Expert Database: features obesity experts from across Europe, who are willing and available to talk about their personal experiences
- Patient Database: features patient spokespeople from across Europe, who are willing and available to talk with media about their personal experiences. Patient advocates, and patient group representatives can be contacted via the EASO Secretariat Email: [email protected] Reception Tel: +44 (0) 20 3751 7967
- Obesity Image Bank: links to credible third-party resources that feature obesity-related imagery which can be downloaded and used for a variety of publication needs
- Obesity Facts & Figures: Up-to-date obesity data and trends
Exclusive videos of leading experts in the field of obesity: discussing ‘obesity as a gateway disease’ and ‘what’s hot in obesity’
This media portal is a working resource that will continue to evolve over time. We hope you find the contents useful and that it supports your ongoing media reporting on obesity. To ensure we continue to provide you with the most appropriate and beneficial reporting tools, we welcome any feedback you might have.
