Dear colleagues and guests,

We are pleased to invite you to the 2nd Saint Petersburg Forum on Control of Overweight and Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus scheduled for March 23–24, 2018 at the Almazov National Medical Research Centre.

Traditionally, the event will bring together experts from all specialties professionally involved in the treatment of overweight and diabetes: endocrinologists, dietitians, psychologists, surgeons, pediatricians, gynecologists, and fitness specialists. The Forum will enable them to combine the efforts and enhance the efficiency of various overweight control methods by team (multidisciplinary) approach.

The Forum engages patients as active participants who have managed to achieve a lasting and long-term weight loss, including after bariatric surgery. The presentations by patients will be a unique part of the Forum and provide invaluable insights to both obesity-related specialists and people who are looking for ways to lose weight.

On March 23, the conference on improving medical care for patients with obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus will be held. It will feature a specialized exhibition where medical centers will have an opportunity to share their experience in overweight treatment.

Considering the relevance and importance of the topic, the programme of the event will be supplemented by presentations from OB/GYNs (on the issues of infertility and pregnancy complications in obese women) and pediatricians (regarding overweight children’s health).

The Forum will provide a unique opportunity to learn from the successful experience of others.

On March 24, the forum for patients will be held, where they will obtain extensive and versatile information about the advanced methods of treating overweight and type 2 diabetes mellitus. The patients will gain insights into successful obesity treatment and will be able to choose the optimal way to lose weight.

Specialists from all disciplines, including nutritionists, dietitians and fitness specialists, are encouraged to attend.
