Less than 100 days Until the Your Weight Matters NATIONAL Convention –
arly-bird Registration Ending May 20

Tampa, Fla. – Early-bird registration for the 2nd Annual Your Weight Matters National Convention will end on Monday, May 20. Individuals interested in attending the premier educational event on weight and health can still secure a Full Convention Registration for only $95.

Full Convention Registration is the best value and allows individuals to take advantage of all Convention has to offer. Full Registration includes: access to all educational sessions and Exhibit Hall, official Convention T-shirt, souvenir tote bag, Convention Program Book, ability to pre-register for the OAC’s Advocacy Training Session (Thurs), breakfast on Friday and Saturday morning, ticket to Event Welcoming Ceremonies Dinner (Fri.), and ticket to OAC’s 2nd Annual Awards Dinner (Sat.). Lunch is not included.

“We’re less than 100 days away from this year’s Convention and the excitement is growing more and more each day. From topics such as, ‘Your Life-long Journey – Understanding Your Weight-loss Options’ to ‘Who’s in Control? The Science behind Willpower,’ this year’s Program Agenda is attracting hundreds of individuals to Phoenix,” said Joe Nadglowski, Obesity Action Coalition (OAC) President and CEO.

One-day registrations are also available during Early-bird Savings for just $25/day and are ideal for those who only want access to the educational sessions and Exhibit Hall and do not want to take part in the social activities of the meeting.   The Convention also offers registration for health professionals interested in earning up to 14 CE credits to attend to learn what their patients are learning.

The OAC would not be able to offer individuals Convention registration at such a low cost without the support of our generous National Sponsors: PlatinumEisai; Gold – Allergan, and Vivus, Inc.; SilverCovidien; BronzeBari Life Bariatric Supplements, Bariatric Advantage, Celebrate Bariatric Supplements, Ethicon Endo-Surgery, and Geisinger.
