Obesity is a chronic relapsing disease that acts as a gateway to other NCDs and is linked with an increased risk of developing breast, ovary, liver and colon cancer.
EASO is pleased to support the European Cancer Organisation-led Interact Europe project, which brings together 33 partners from 17 countries to develop a patient-centred European inter-specialty cancer training programme.
