About Our Education

Each year’s topics and speakers set the OAC’s annual Convention apart with the high caliber education we offer. You won’t see any gimmicks or overplayed diet advice that you can find quickly on the internet. Instead, we dig through the industry’s latest topics and research to bring you hands-on, practical education on weight management that is science-based.

We also bring together an impressive lineup of industry experts to break down everything on a level that is practical and easy-to-understand. You’ll hear from physicians, researchers, mental health professionals, dietitians, exercise physiologists and much more!

Whether you’re struggling with weight or you’re concerned with weight-related issues, look no further than the OAC’s Your Weight Matters Convention & EXPO for education you can’t beat. This year we are also pleased to offer up to 20 Continuing Education (CE) credits for nurses and other health professionals, so YWM2020 is a can’t-miss event if you work with patients affected by these issues. It is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to gain a better understanding of the challenges your patients face with weight and explore additional tools to help you support them.
