One thing we can always count on in life is change. When you run up against change, does it tend to throw you off balance, or do you embrace it and move forward?

When we learn to adapt, grow, and let change empower us, we can do almost anything. This is especially true for weight management in the pursuit of health. That’s why we chose the theme of OAC’s 2021 Annual Convention to be, “Embrace Change. Move Forward. Recharge Your Health.” Perhaps never before have we been more challenged to embrace change in our health journeys than in this past year and a half as we navigated a pandemic that changed everything!
