Making a Difference!

Since its inception in June 2015, the Toronto Chapter of the Canadian Obesity Network (CON-YYZ) has hosted quarterly networking events for professionals working in obesity and the general public.

Our members are enthusiastic and dedicated volunteers, including health practitioners, educators, fitness professionals, researchers, policy makers and people affected by obesity.

Join CON-YYZ to get involved with our activities, learn from obesity experts, build partnerships, network with others in the field and help us collectively develop ideas on how we can address, prevent and treat obesity.
