Stronger Together: Taking #OACAction to New Heights

Why does the OAC put so much emphasis on “Action” and ask for your support? It’s because there is so much work to be done in the obesity landscape and to improve the lives of people affected by it.

In this energizing session that kicked-off OAC’s 2018 Convention, nationally-acclaimed advocates Jeanne Blankenship, RD; and Ethan Lazarus, MD, demonstrate the strength in us working together.
