The OAC is proud to have hosted its 8th annual Your Weight Matters Convention & EXPO in Tampa, August 1-3. Attendees came away empowered in their personal health journeys, but also energized to join the OAC in changing the world for people living with obesity.
There is limited medical obesity care for the millions of U.S. patients affected by it. However, data shows that greater coverage will actually save our healthcare system money. Improved access to obesity care, such as that created by the Treat and Reduce Obesity Act, is critical.
