National Obesity Care Week (NOCW) 2019 is here! Thank you for supporting access to care without barriers for people with excess weight or obesity.
On each day listed below, you can take part in an action designed to help improve access to care.
On Monday, September 16th at 1pm EST/ 10am PST you can join the OAC and others in a Twitter Thunderclap. We will all be sharing an image and hashtag along with your own story about access to care or the story provided.
On Wednesday, September 18th, we invite you to send a thank you letter to your healthcare provider (HCP), thanking them for improving access to care. A sample letter will be available to download and customize and email to your HCP.
On Friday, September 20th, the OAC will be participating in an OAC Day on the Hill to support the Treat and Reduce Obesity Act (TROA). On this day we ask that you lend your support by emailing your members of congress asking them to support TROA. A form to find and email your Representative and Senators will be provided.
The OAC believes that everyone should have access to obesity care that is not limited by a person’s size, weight or economic status. We count on your support during this awareness week. Together we can change the way we care about obesity!
