Paediatric Research in Obesity Multi-modal Intervention and Service Evaluation Programme (PROMISE)

A national symposium examining the findings of the PROMISE programme and what they mean for UK actions on child and adolescent obesity. Researchers, policy makers, practitioners and young people will present and share their views during the event.

The symposium will also examine the implications of PROMISE findings for public health and policy, for clinical practice and for the research community as we step up our responses to the obesity epidemic.
