Learn About Taking Action
Obesity is a complex disease and is also often misunderstood, which is why we need our community members to help us take action on issues that matter to them. The OAC encourages YOU to take #OACAction for change. You can learn more about taking action below.

Spreading the Word about Your #OACACTION
Taking Action and affecting change is something that requires many voices. We want you to Spread the Word about #OACAction with your peers, community members and the public. When you share your actions with others, it shows them the importance of the work of our community, and encourages them to add their voice as well! So when you take action, be sure to share that action on social media by using the official hashtag – #OACAction!
