EASO Certification in Obesity Management

The EASO Certification in Obesity Management recognises national and European experts in obesity management. Applicants must be a fully paid up member of their affiliated EASO National Association (where an affiliated Association exists in the applicant’s country of residence). Each applicant should obtain a written endorsement from their National Association, or in special circumstances where no affiliated National Obesity Association exists, directly from EASO. Each application is reviewed by the EASO OMTF (Obesity Management Task Force) or EASO COTF (Childhood Obesity Task Force) as appropriate. Successful applicants will be notified by the EASO Secretariat. Nominations will be reported at each ECO, via the EASO website, in Obesity Facts and via EASO membership newsletters.
