Canadian Obesity Network Students & New Professionals (CON-SNP)

Obesity is a complex and multifactorial disease, and in Ontario, 60% of adults and 27% of children aged 2 to 17 are overweight or obese.

There are links between Obesity and many other health conditions, including Cancer; but the majority of Canadians (70%) are unaware of this relationship.

Further, there are many misconceptions and myths surrounding Obesity and pursuing a healthy lifestyle.

CON-SNP@Mac is bringing an interdisciplinary network to generate ideas and execute exciting projects on how to address, prevent, and treat obesity.

Whether its being involved with our Research Seminars, or aiding in planning events (speaker sessions, policy advocacy, outreach activities) and giveaways/games, we offer a variety of ways to be involved to advance the health of the McMaster community in a unique manner!
