Invest in your health and yourself by attending YWM2019 in TampaWhen you attend the OAC’s 2019 Your Weight Matters Convention & EXPO (YWM2019), you’re making an investment in your health!

This incredible 3-day weekend will walk you through the ins and outs of weight management and give you the right kind of tools and support to navigate your journey successfully.

No matter what stage of health you’re in, what goals you have, or what experiences with weight have shaped your life and circumstances, YWM2019 will take your journey to the next level. Please consider joining us in Tampa, August 1-3, for a weekend you’ll always remember!

Why YWM2019 is One of a Kind

Lots of health conferences are out there, many of which address topics like weight management. So what’s different about YWM2019?

It’s more than a conference; it’s an experience. We know the various issues our attendees face – from not knowing how to sort through all the “information” and “science” on weight management to factors like obesity-related conditions, weight stigma and mental health. We know that weight-loss is about so much more than “eating less” and “moving more.”

YWM2019 will break through the shallow surface of mainstream education on weight and health. It will teach you about the total picture of your health with more than 50 science-based topics from our dynamic Program Agenda including:

  • Understanding What Drives Hunger: The Connection between Your Brain and Appetite
  • How Companies are Responding to the Ever-changing Needs of Patients
  • Let’s Get Real about Weight Regain
  • Using Your Values to Empower Healthy Change with Acceptance-based Therapy

Walk Away with a Fresh Outlook

Rejuvenate your journey with weight and health at YWM2019Perhaps the most transformative aspect of any YWM Convention is the vibrant energy and breakthrough moments that our attendees discover throughout the weekend.

The journey with weight and health can sometimes be confusing, tough and tiring, but it’s no match for the level of education and community our Convention is committed to providing. In fact, one of our past (and returning) attendees and OAC Community Members described it perfectly:

“I got an OAC email about YWM2019 and I remembered how supportive and kind everyone was. The education was terrific and the group’s interactions were great. Knowing that others at the conference will not be judging me about my weight gain is comforting. Having fun (like at the OAC’s costume party) and enjoying time with like-minded people was, and always is, inspiring. My hopes for YWM2019? Shaking off my negativity, being inspired by new people and ideas, and listening to wonderful speakers who are passionate about what they do. There are so many things to look forward to!” – Leone Moore: Forth Worth, TX

A YWM Convention weekend can rejuvenate your health journey and help you find joy in it, identify with others sharing similar experiences, and be motivated to tackle your biggest goals and life ambitions. Don’t miss the chance to ignite your summer by joining us in Tampa this August!
