#TheReasonIGive – Because Many Don’t See the Hard Work Done by The OAC Daily
by Holly F. Lofton, MD
I give to the OAC because this group is so close to my heart for many reasons.
From creating a comfortable community for those affected by obesity, to marching to Capitol Hill to advocate for equality and access to treatments, the OAC continues to be a tireless entity.
The Annual Your Weight Matters National Convention is especially unique in that those from around the world affected by obesity can meet annually and expect to understand the disease of obesity, to share stories and sometimes tears, and yet a good time is undoubtedly had by all.
However, what many don’t see is the hard work that is done daily by the OAC Staff and its supporters as they continue to strive for excellence. This is why I give.
