< strong>A complex disease

For the fourth year in a row, the Foundation of the Institut universitaire de cardiologie et de pneumologie de Québec (IUCPQ) designates the month of October as Obesity and Metabolic Disease Awareness Month. Throughout the month, the “Transform Lives. Awaken Hope” will be deployed to demystify many myths surrounding the disease of obesity and metabolic diseases, and to highlight the cutting-edge expertise of the Institute’s professionals. Obesity is a chronic disease that is too often underdiagnosed and undertreated, in addition to being often linked to other types of diseases. This campaign aims to urge people to stop seeing severe obesity as just a lifestyle problem. It is a complex disease with many unknown facets. www.fondation-iucpq.org.
