Tampa, Fla. – The Obesity Action Coalition (OAC) is excited to announce the date and location of the 2nd Annual Your Weight Matters National Convention. The Convention will take place August 15 – 18, 2013 in Phoenix at the Arizona Grand Resort & Spa.

“We are thrilled to be hosting the 2nd Annual Your Weight Matters National Convention in Phoenix. Our Inaugural Convention was an incredible success as we welcomed hundreds of individuals from throughout the U.S. wanting to learn more about weight and health. As an attendee and Chair of the OAC, I was deeply touched by the cohesiveness and sense of ‘family’ that the Convention offered to all of us. August 15 can’t come soon enough,” said Pam Davis, RN, CBN, BSN.

The OAC chose Arizona as the 2013 Convention location due to its high-concentration of OAC members and the quality of resorts that offered the type of experience attendees expect at the Convention. “Last year, we had such an overwhelming positive response to the Convention in Dallas. Our attendees are still talking about their experience and have been anxiously awaiting today’s announcement. We wanted to be sure to offer attendees the same level of service this year, and Phoenix will allow us to do just that. The Arizona Grand Resort & Spa is an impressive property, and I know our attendees are going to enjoy themselves,” said Joe Nadglowski, OAC President and CEO.
