Urge Your State Representatives to Prioritize Access to Obesity Care and #StopWeightBias!
How can you help?
Contact your State Senator and State House Representative today and urge them to prioritize the disease of obesity! More than 93 million Americans are currently affected by the disease of obesity and obesity rates continue to increase rapidly, yet it is not treated the same as other diseases either medically or generally in our society. It’s time to create a better world for people with obesity by:
- Expanding access to obesity care for state workers and for all residents;
- Enacting legislation that protects people with overweight or obesity from weight-based discrimination, bias, and stigma; and
- Prioritizing obesity care through expanded prevention and science-based treatment programs.
