We are excited to open up the OAC’s 2017 Annual Award nomination process that will be presented on Saturday evening, August 12th, at the 6th Annual Your Weight Matters National Convention in New Orleans. OAC’s Annual Awards Program honors outstanding OAC members and volunteers for their tireless efforts to help individuals affected by obesity through education, advocacy and support. Our members truly drive the successes of the OAC, and we are excited to celebrate the individuals that have made a direct impact in advancing the goals and mission of the OAC. A complete list of the awards to be presented may be found to the right. Of the seven awards, three are open to the membership to submit nominations. These awards will be presented during the awards ceremony, held in conjunction with the 2017 National Convention in New Orleans. The remaining award recipients will be selected by the OAC Nominating Committee (see right to view members). These awards will be presented later in the year. If you know someone who is deserving of one or more of the OAC’s awards, we encourage you to submit a nomination using the below links.
