riga-diabetes-obesity-20137th International Conference on Diabetes & Obesity

Strategies, Solutions & Challenges 

24–25 October 2013

Rīga, Latvia

On behalf of International Society of Antioxidants in Nutrition and Health (ISANH) and Rīga Stradiņš University (RSU) we are proud to announce the 7th World Congress on Diabetes & Obesity 2013 which will be held in Riga, Latvia on October 24-25, 2013.

Prevention & Treatments Strategies: Our Priority during Rīga Congress

In order to contribute to the slow-down and stop the progression of this disease, Rīga Diabetes & Obesity 2013 will discuss on the latest therapeutic innovations, the new pathways which will allow the development of new pharmaceutical treatments but also discuss how to prevent from diabetes and obesity by using natural ingredients to prevent or fight against diabetes and obesity.

Rīga Diabetes & Obesity 2013 aims also to launch the discussion between the different actors involved in the fight against obesity. It still remains that diabetes and obesity are multi-factorial problems, involving genetic, neurological, behavioural and cultural components, and as such, a long term solution to the problem is unachievable through single sector approach. Instead an integrated strategy is required, with input and close collaboration from all of the many different stakeholders involved – the food industry, governments and regulators, researchers, health professionals, the media, and of course consumers themselves.
