In order to help the European scientific and clinical communities better understand the patient experience along the care pathway and to support patient concerns and perspectives, EASO has established the ‘European Patient Council’. The EASO Patient Council serves to elevate and promote the needs and interests of our European patient community with a broad range of stakeholders. The Patient Council is composed of patient representatives from several countries and acts as a united European patient voice. It develops patient-led position statements, fosters networking between patients, scientific groups and HCPs, delivers patient education via workshops at the annual European Congress on Obesity and through appropriate training sessions, develops practical online educational materials, and champions European Obesity Day.
