CORE is dedicated to understanding and optimally managing the chronic disease of obesity and measuring the effects of weight loss on health, quality of life and survival (Mission Statement 2011). It is an international leader in the study of bariatric surgery. Our research aims to better understand obesity, obesity-related diseases (including psychosocial conditions) and to identify optimal methods for the safe, cost-effective, long-term management of this disease.
CORE is unique in applying a multidisciplinary approach to the study of obesity. It integrates a clinical obesity management program with strengths in medicine, surgery, psychology, epidemiology, public health and professional and community education. Through this integration, CORE is expertly placed to measure the health consequences of obesity and has the capacity to evaluate the health benefits of weight loss.
Centre for Obesity Research and Education (CORE) is a part of the School of Public Health and Preventive Medicine.
