Convention Scholarship Program

Together, we have the power to change lives.

Once a year, the OAC packages its foundational pillars of education, advocacy and support into a one-of-a-kind educational experience at the Your Weight Matters Convention. OAC’s Convention prides itself on offering science-based weight management strategies to individuals while surrounded by a supportive community.

Unfortunately, for many, financial hardships prevent the experience of the Convention from becoming a reality.

We believe strongly in the high-quality weight and health education and exceptional experience our attendees attest to, so it is our goal to make this a reality for every person who wishes to attend.

For that reason, the OAC created the Convention Scholarship Program. This designated program helps cover and/or offset the meeting’s expenses (when offered in an in-person format) by awarding a scholarship grant to those with financial hardship. Scholarship grants are funded by the generosity of donors like you – those who are committed to inviting individuals to access to quality education and a community of support like none other.
