The BAU Clinics for nutritional and weight management after a careful evaluation by the EASO Obesity Management Task Force, and satisfied all criteria, has been recognized as EASO International Affiliate COM centre for the two year period 1st March 2019 to 28th February 2021. The EASO COM network brings together accredited university and public centres from across Europe and now incorporates centres form other regions via the International affiliated Membership scheme, and we are proud that our center is the first from outside the European region. As a member of this network, our centre will have the opportunity to contribute to a number of important EASO projects. One of the main goals of the COM network is to develop consensus guidelines on a number of management issues, with consensus achieved via the exchange of expertise during specially convened ‘COM Summit Meetings’.
