Endometrial cancer is the cancer most strongly linked to obesity. Endometrial cancer survivors comprise a high-risk group for obesity-related comorbidities. Healthy eating and physical activity can lead to better health and well-being, but this population may experience difficulties adopting healthy lifestyle practices. Personalised behaviour change programmes that are feasible, acceptable, and cost-effective are needed. This talk will cover the epidemiological and mechanistic evidence linking obesity and endometrial cancer development. It will then focus on current and future opportunities for helping endometrial cancer survivors adhere to healthy eating and physical activity.

This talk is part of the The obesity epidemic: Discussing the global health crisis series.
