Message from the ASO Chair
I am pleased and honoured to write my first welcome address as Chair of ASO in celebration of the launch of our new website. I hope you like the new look and feel and the opportunities it brings to make renewing and joining the ASO easier, as well as different ways to engage with us through abstract submissions for the March meeting on satiety and symposia suggestions for UKCO15, amongst others. We welcome your feedback and any ideas you have to enhance its functionality further.
I would like to extend my thanks to Professor Jason Halford, the previous Chair for steering the Association through a very important period which has included the strategic review and identifying actions to ensure that the ASO retains its position as the leading obesity organisation at the forefront for promoting obesity research and informing practice and policy. I take on the role at a very exciting time – a time where I look forward to working with both the existing and new Trustees to deliver the actions identified through our strategic review.
