Rob Portinga was a long-time volunteer and beloved member of the OAC National Board of Directors, best known for creating and fostering meaningful connections within our Community. Through this fund, we honor Rob by ensuring everyone has the opportunity to develop the bonds that can only be found at OAC’s Your Weight Matters National Convention.
We believe strongly in the high-quality weight and health education and exceptional experience presented at Convention, priding ourselves on offering science-based weight management strategies to individuals while surrounded by a supportive community. Formerly the Convention Scholarship Program, this designated fund 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.
Grants are fully funded by the generosity of donors – individuals committed to inviting others to access quality education and an unrivaled community of support.
