The Obesity Action Coalition was pleased to see the issue of obesity raised during the last democratic primary debate.

As we’re on the cusp of Obesity Care Week 2020 (March 1st – 7th) and World Obesity Day next week (March 4th), it’s invaluable to have the issue of obesity discussed on the national debate stage. It is our hope that obesity continues to be a focal point for discussion all the way through to the Presidential debates as well. To learn more about Obesity Care Week, please visit

With more than 93 million Americans impacted by obesity, it is important that our government continues to recognize this issue and work together to find real solutions to change the way we care.
