The European Childhood Obesity Group (ECOG) founded in 1991 by pediatricians (ecog-obesity.eu) has an unique experience in this field.
Since 20 years its members have built an European network in order to better understand, evaluate, prevent and treat child and adolescent obesity.
Altogether the ECOG members have published more than 1,000 papers focusing on child and adolescent obesity indexed in Pub med and taken part to several major national and international meetings, expertises and studies.
A first common book was published at Cambridge University Press in 2002. Annual meetings abstracts and position papers are published in indexed journals.
