Find a Support Network

Support networks are another important component in the fight against obesity. Getting involved in a support network is a great way to connect with others who are facing the same challenges and triumphs.

Find an Online-based Support Forum
OAC has partnered with Smart Patients to create this new Weight Management Online Forum for patients and their families to have an honest conversation about weight and health. Patients and their loved ones can join the forum for free to share, interact, and learn from each other in a safe, supportive environment. By partnering with Smart Patients, we are connecting people affected by the disease of obesity regardless of where you are on your journey toward better health.

Join the Smart Patients Weight Management Forum, ask a question, and support others who can learn
from you.
