Tampa, FL – The Obesity Action Coalition (OAC) is excited to announce the release of its newest educational brochure, titled “Understanding Obesity.”

This free brochure, a first of its kind, offers readers an in-depth look and complete understanding of obesity and morbid obesity, who it affects, health risks, causes, treatment options and much more.

“The OAC recognized that there wasn’t an educational brochure available to patients and the public that really looked at obesity as a whole. This brochure is an excellent tool for people wanting to have a complete overall understanding of obesity. Often times, people overlook the many facets of living with obesity or morbid obesity, such as the diminished quality of life, the negative stigma associated with it, the lack of the ability for individuals to access safe and effective care and much more. This brochure does a great job of addressing those topics,” said Joseph Nadglowski, Jr., OAC President and CEO.

Recognizing the importance in providing a comprehensive look at this disease and its effects on the public, this brochure is the first in a series of brochures that will discuss obesity, childhood obesity, treatment options and much more.

Copies of “Understanding Obesity” are available free of charge. To request copies, please visit www.obesityaction.org or contact the National Office at (800) 717-3117 or info@obesityaction.org.
