Free Webinars on Childhood Obesity

Your safety is our primary concern

Given the continuing impact of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic and resulting restrictions, ECOG has decided to transition the live 30th ECOG Congress scheduled to take place in Budapest from 11-14 November 2020 to an interactive and engaging online event.  Full details outlining the format will be announced as soon as possible.  ECOG intends to host the 2021 ECOG Congress in Budapest. 

Our online programme will have unprecedented global relevance, reach and convenience. Wherever you are in the world, all presentations, discussions and digital content will be available to you throughout the event, and beyond. We will offer digital scientific sessions, discussion, and interactive presentations.

All events will be hosted on the Zoom platform. We are working hard to develop the new online programme and interactive delegate elements and we aim to make the virtual ECOG experience as informative and engaging as possible.

More information and Registration link to be available soon, we look forward to welcoming you to the ECOGwebinars.
