In December 2009, the OAC joined with dozens of other organizations in supporting a House Resolution sponsored by Representatives Marcia Fudge (D-OH) and Kay Granger (R-TX) that would designate the month of September as “Childhood Obesity Awareness Month.”
In addition to signing on as an official supporter of the Resolution, OAC President Joe Nadglowski personally reached out to the Health Legislative staff in every Congressional office, urging them to have their legislator co-sponsor and push for passage of the Fudge/Granger Resolution.
The OAC’s support was also communicated to the senior health policy staff in the First Lady’s Office, in hopes that First Lady Michelle Obama will incorporate the Resolution into her comprehensive efforts to fight childhood obesity.
OAC members can be involved in helping to pass the Fudge/Granger Resolution. We encourage each OAC member to become actively involved in this effort to pass the Resolution.
