At the ASO Scotland Network, we aim to organise regular meetings, to bring together basic and applied researchers, practitioners and educators, patient groups, policy makers and industry agencies in Scotland. The ASO Scotland Network should be the focus for sharing of evidence to inform practice, aimed at reducing obesity and the harms arising from it.

Interested individuals, groups, and organisations are welcome to contribute ideas and efforts for future activities. Please contact Professor Alex Johnstone.
