Message from the ASO Chair
I first became a member of the Association for the Study of Obesity when I was a PhD student, more than 20 years ago now. I recall attending my first ASO conference at the Institute of Child Health in London and having the opportunity to listen to, and learn from, some of the leading obesity researchers in the UK.
