Latham Attends obesityweek 2014 in Boston

This week, Boston has welcomed surgeons, dietitians, psychologists and many other leaders in the obesity field at obesityweek 2014. Hyperphagia (abnormally increased appetite) is a condition that afflicts millions of people worldwide. I spent the day yesterday meeting with dietitians from around the world getting feedback and suggestions for helping our children and adults experience a more satisfying and fulfilling diet. Today's agenda is the psychology of eating and how we can better support those who equate food with emotional security.

It has been a privilege to learn from these professionals who dedicate their lives to helping those who live with hyperphagia.
