2021 was a pivotal year for the Obesity Action Coalition. Throughout the past year, the OAC has laid the necessary groundwork to make us a critical force in the key areas we fight, and we’re thrilled that we’ve already made significant progress. As we move into 2022, we know The Best is Yet to Come, but it will take all of us working together to make the most profound progress yet.
Our goal is to raise $10,000 to support a 2022 agenda that will build on our momentum. You have the chance to make an incredible impact on the OAC Community by making a tax-deductible contribution toward our mission, starting a peer-to-peer campaign or simply getting more involved.

Share OAC Education
There is a lot of misinformation out there about obesity, and stigma can prevent others from understanding obesity as a disease. The OAC provides bias-free and science-based education about obesity, its treatments and more. You can share these resources online or order print copies to share in your local community.
Share Your Story
Sharing your story about your experience with obesity helps others understand that it is a complex and chronic disease. Whether you are living with obesity, provide for someone with obesity or are a healthcare provider, your story is a powerful way to humanize our cause and raise awareness. It is also one way to support and empower others who may be struggling.
