Teaching health promotion throughout the lifespan, obesity is forefront in terms of key topics (replacing smoking cessation). I would truly value an opportunity to be informed of current research (which I would share with my students), as well as be apprised of upcoming learning/discussion opportunities with other health care professionals to glean and promote an interprofessional approach to the increasing prevalence of obesity in our population.
