5th International Conference on Obesity and Chronic Diseases

About this Event

Welcome to ICOCD Berlin-2019

Dear Colleagues, Many thanks to the organizer for giving me the privilege of welcoming and addressing you all. It is an honor and great pleasure for me to be the chairperson for Fifth International Conference on Obesity and Chronic Diseases.

We will come together with colleagues from all over the world, making this international meeting interactive and productive.

Of course, obesity is a world-wide epidemic. Studies suggest that up to two Billion people are overweight or obese. Obesity is not only a cosmetic problem, it is a serious symptom with a lot of additional diseases. It is not only a “privilege” of the industrial countries. There is a high rate of obesity in Greenland as well on the other end of the world across the South sea. In the United States, two-thirds of the population is overweight, and 35 percent of the adults are obese. In Germany the statistics are quite similar - more than 50% are overweight and approximately 25% are obese.

These three days will be dedicated to covering a wide spectrum of themes related to the field of obesity. We can expect to enjoy a lot of informative presentations and intensive discussions.

In Germany we say, “Berlin is always worth a journey” (Berlin ist immer eine Reise wert). For this reason, I hope you will find some time to see a little bit of Berlin. Stroll along the famous “Kudamm” (Kurfürstendamm) or enjoy a cup of coffee on the top of the “KADEWE” (Kaufhaus des Westens) with a breath-taking view over the city of Berlin.

I look forward to welcoming you all for ICOCD Berlin-2019
