Tampa, Fla. – On the heels of a highly successful Your Weight Matters National Convention, the OAC is excited to announce the debut of YWMLocal – Boston 2014. On November 2, 2014, the OAC will host the Inaugural YWMLocal event, in conjunction with ObesityWeek 2014 and in partnership with The Obesity Society and the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery, where Boston and surrounding area residents are welcome to attend a FREE event focusing on weight, health, nutrition, children and weight, weight-loss options, and much more.

Conveniently hosted at the Westin Boston Waterfront, YWMLocal – Boston offers easy access from a variety of cities. The OAC welcomes individuals and their family members from all throughout the northeast. The event will begin at 11:30 am and end at 4:00 pm. YWMLocal Boston will offer educational sessions on topics such as “A Look at Your Options: Evidence-based Weight Management Strategies,” “Childhood Obesity: A Complex Discussion between Providers and Parents,” and much more!

“YWMLocal Boston is an excellent opportunity for the OAC to give back to the city of Boston during ObesityWeek. This free event will provide attendees with easy-to-understand evidence-based information on weight and health. The presentations will be given by leaders in the healthcare field who truly understand the difficulties of managing excess weight and obesity,” said Joe Nadglowski, OAC President and CEO.

YWMLocal – Boston 2014 would not be possible without the support of our sponsors. The OAC would like to thank the sponsors of YWMLocal Boston 2014 for their generous support: Gold – Novo Nordisk; Silver – Eisai, Inc.; and Bronze – Arena Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
