All Island Obesity Newsletter September/October 2014

Dear Colleagues,                                                                                  

Welcome to the latest edition of All-island Obesity News. 

The next workshop will be held on the 11th November 2014 in the Gibson Hotel in Dublin. This event will focus on the marketing of foods and drinks to children on the island of Ireland and explore their understanding of these messages. The marketing strategies of food and drinks sponsors at the Olympic and Commonwealth games will also be discussed while our keynote speaker Dr Joao Breda from the World Health Organisation will focus on childhood obesity in the EU, future plans for EU initiatives and the relevance of this to social marketing. You can now register for this event online here.

Thank you to all those who completed our evaluation survey. Results will be available shortly and we look forward to providing you with a new and improved newsletter in the New Year.

I would encourage you to circulate All-island Obesity News among your colleagues and to share your work via this publication by submitting any relevant news items to Laura Keaver at
