OAC Sponsored Membership Program

With over 100 million Americans affected by obesity, the relationship between a patient and a health care provider is vital. That’s why the OAC developed a unique program specifically for healthcare providers to show support for their patients while getting them more engaged in their care and the broader issues in obesity – the OAC Sponsored Membership Program!

The OAC’s Sponsored Membership Program is a unique program that allows physicians and/or hospitals/institutions to purchase OAC Community+ Membership for each of their patients at a discounted rate of $10/each (Community+ Membership is typically $25). This program was started in 2009 and has since welcomed more than 40 practices from 19 states to participate. This program alone has been responsible for better connecting more than 28,000 patients in their care and the efforts of the OAC!

Community+ Membership provides patients with a wide variety of exclusive benefits, designed to uniquely connect them in issues pertaining to their health, ongoing care and well-being. When you purchase Community+ Membership for your patients, you can expect that they’ll be a part of a Community that believes in providing evidence-based education on all issues relating to health and obesity, fighting to improve access to care and the elimination of weight bias, and elevating the conversation of weight and its impact on health. Community+ Membership offers the maximum amount of support for the individual affected by obesity no matter where they are on their journey with weight and health. We make this program flexible and easy to implement, and it is designed to be as least time intensive on your staff as possible.

The OAC Sponsored Membership Program is a great way to show support of your patients and to encourage them to play a more active role in their health.
