Tampa, Fla. – The 2011 fall issue of the Obesity Action Coalition’s official publication, “Your Weight Matters Magazine,” will mark the magazine’s 25th issue. Throughout the past six years, “Your Weight Matters Magazine” covered a variety of important topics for individuals affected by the disease of obesity. The magazine continues to be one of the most objective and unbiased resources for individuals seeking more information on obesity, its treatments and much more.

“This publication has evolved tremendously since its inception. The magazine continues to be the number one OAC membership benefit time and time again. The OAC has been very fortunate to have some incredible authors throughout the years. We are very proud of ‘Your Weight Matters Magazine,’” said Joe Nadglowski, OAC President and CEO.

Launched in 2005, the publication began as a two-color 20-page newsletter, titled “OAC News.” As the publication thrived, it transitioned into a magazine just three years later. Today, “Your Weight Matters Magazine” is a 40-page four color publication with a subscription list of more than 33,000 individuals each issue. Magazine subscribers are made up primarily of individuals affected by obesity, healthcare professionals and more.

“As a healthcare professional and a patient, I find ‘Your Weight Matters Magazine’ to be an excellent resource for individuals. From nutritional information to information on various weight-loss treatments, each issue gives you a little bit of everything you need for your journey in the fight against obesity,” said Pam Davis, RN, CBN, OAC Vice-chairman.
