Tampa, Fla. – The Obesity Action Coalition (OAC) is excited to announce the launch of its brand new public resource, the OAC Resource Library. The library features a wealth of information on topics such as, nutrition strategies, the science of obesity, bariatric surgery, weight bias, exercise and more. From resource articles to videos to guides, the OAC Resource Library is a true testament to the unparalleled science-based education that the OAC is known and respected for.
“The OAC Resource Library is a tremendous public resource. Throughout the past 16 years, OAC has continually provided our members and the public with valuable education on diverse topics. Our biggest hurdle was ‘how do we feature all of this in one place?’ The library answers that question and really provides people with a great user-experience,” said Joe Nadglowski, OAC President and CEO.
Content for the new library was sourced from key OAC educational programming, such as Weight Matters Magazine, the Your Weight Matters Annual Convention, OAC Health Talks and much more. “The OAC prides itself on producing quality education. It’s one of our core pillars, and we take it very seriously, as we know there is so much misinformation out there when it comes to obesity. This new resource truly showcases the breadth of knowledge that the OAC provides,” said Patty Nece, JD, OAC Chair.
While education is always a core pillar of the OAC, it became a dominant thematic element in OAC’s work this year. The organization debuted its highly successful OAC Health Talks, which airs on its YouTube Channel, hosted another successful Convention with more than 2,000 attendees worldwide and published its quarterly magazine, Weight Matters Magazine, featuring interesting articles on the childhood obesity epidemic, robotic bariatric surgery, ways to stay engaged while working from home, and much more.
The OAC Resource Library will now play home to all of these incredible resources. “The content doesn’t just stop with our already-established educational offerings. New and exclusive content will be added to the library on a continual basis, so be sure to visit often,” said Joe.
