Now is the Time to ACT!
Obesity Care Week brings together patients, allies, medical care providers, and advocates for a week of awareness, education, and action around our shared goals:
- Educating all Americans about obesity. Obesity is a complex and chronic disease. People who have obesity must have access to affordable and science-tested medical treatments. Everyone should have access to prevention information and resources.
- Increasing awareness and understanding of weight bias and stigma to ensure that all people with obesity are treated equally with respect, empathy, and have equitable access to care.
- Empowering all people to find their advocacy voice. NOW is the time to ACT! Decision makers at the national, state, and local levels need to hear from you to prioritize obesity care, bias, and prevention.
