OAC Exhibits at the 29th Annual Meeting of the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS)
June 18-21, the OAC was in attendance at the 29th Annual Meeting of the ASMBS in San Diego. We had an exhibit booth where we showcased our educational materials and educated new OAC members on the benefits of their OAC membership.
The OAC also held our annual OAC Reception during the ASMBS meeting. This event gives OAC members in attendance at ASMBS the opportunity to mingle with each other, as well as the OAC staff. It was great to see and meet so many of our members!
OAC Invites You to “Spend a Day on Capitol Hill”
The OAC is offering an Advocacy Training session during our Inaugural Your Weight Matters National Convention. The session will take place Thursday, October 25, from 12:00 pm – 5:00 pm. Convention registration is required to participate in this session; however, the training session is FREE for Convention registrants.
This Advocacy Training session will provide an in-depth look at how the legislative process works, as well as provide you with the knowledge and tools to be an effective advocate for the OAC in the fight against obesity. Individuals will also have the opportunity to participate in a “mock” “Day on Capitol Hill” – simulating visits with members of Congress and their staff.
This training session is limited to the first 100 interested Your Weight Matters Inaugural Convention attendees, so sign-up soon! You can learn more about the OAC’s Advocacy Training Session by clicking here.>>>
