Day 1 of ASOI 2017 will focus on prevention of childhood obesity, and integral to the day we are holding roundtable discussion workshops as part of a study to identify and prioritise knowledge gaps concerning obesity prevention and knowledge translation. We hope all attending will consent to involvement in these workshops, allowing us to harness the collective expertise of a diverse range of participants to set out directions for future research and knowledge translation.
