Obesity is now recognized as one of the most important public health problems facing the world today, and the related chronic diseases are the primary cause of mortality, morbidity, disability and discrimination in health care, education and employment. Taking this into consideration, United Scientific Group (USG) held its first conference on obesity. The International Conference on Obesity and Chronic Diseases was held from July 25-27, 2016 at Hampton Inn Tropicana, Las Vegas, USA (ICOCD-2016). The summit focused to “Discuss Link of Childhood and Adult Obesity to Other Chronic Diseases”.
