About the conference

During the COVID-19 pandemic, families changed their habits in terms of diet, physical activity, work, and social relationships. For many people, these changes have also led to weight gain. How will children be affected by these new habits in the future?

Specialists involved in the development and monitoring of school- or community-based programmes in several countries will share their experience and will propose new strategies for preventing childhood obesity in the post-pandemic era.

The conference will take place under the auspices of Grigore T. Popa University of Medicine and Pharmacy from Iasi. The European Commission supports the event by awarding the first prize to the city of Iași – EU Health Award – cities category, for the initiative to promote a healthy lifestyle among children (Healthy Traditions Programme).
